Is it possible to have various Sitecore instances/versions with the same installed Commerce Server?
I believe it can be done.
Below things need to take care:
- Change commerce databases (Shared and global) name
- Change commerce related indexes name (Commerce, catalog and customer)
- Change default port used for commerce roles
For more details please have a look below blog:
Hoping this will help you.
