You're not doing anything wrong as described by the BBO guide. The manager has an issue where it isn't creating the second folder for separate settings.. you have to create it yourself.

-The BBO server manager should be installed here:
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II PC Server
You may have to run the BBO server manager (swbf2sm.exe) from that location at least once to create a "Settings" folder in that same location, or if you've run the BBO SM already the "settings" folder should already be there.

-Create 2 new folders in the "Settings" folder in that same location called server1 and server2 and leave them empty. (Create as many server folders as needed for the amount of servers you want to setup).
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II PC Server\settings\server1
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II PC Server\settings\server2


-Right click on the BBO swbf2sm.exe program located
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II PC Server.
Select >"send to desktop". Create the amount of shortcuts for the amount of servers you want to create. If you want 2 servers.. you'll need 2 shortcuts... 3 servers, 3 shortcuts, etc.

-Right click on one of the BBO shortcuts on your desktop, and select >Properties. change the target line to
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II PC Server\swbf2sm.exe" -port 3558 -config server1
Adding the "-port 3558" and "-config server1" at the end of the target tells the server what port and what configuration settings to use. Click OK. When you double click the shortcut for server1 to run the BBO server manager, BBO will create a whole new setup for server settings in the new folder you created "server1". When the BBO server manager comes up make sure the ports are configured as 3658 for the gameport and 4658 for the rcon port and then <save>. Start the server when you have it configured the way you want.

-Right click on the second shortcut you created on your desktop. Change the target line to
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Battlefront II PC Server\swbf2sm.exe" -port 3559 -config server2
Click OK. When you double click the shortcut for server2 to run the 2nd BBO server manager, BBO will create a whole new setup for server settings in the new folder you created "server2". When the BBO server manager comes up make sure the game port are 3659 for the gameport and 4659 for the rcon port and save. Start the server.

-for a third server, you'll need a server3 folder created in the same location as the others and the port in the target line would need to change.. (increment 1) to 3560, and the game port when the BBO server manager comes up would need to change to 3660 and the rcon port to 4660.

That's it! You can run as many servers as you want at the same time (but over 3 is pushing it). Any server settings you save will be saved in the server folders you created that correspond to the server1, server2, etc.
