    Why do you need two instances of the data loader? You can always use the same instance to connect to production/sandbox. – Jayant Das Jun 6 at 12:42

  • I'm Using Data Loader CLI on windows remote server desktop to schedule a daily import job that extracts data from Azure and updates into the salesforce custom object (production).Now the requirement is to configure another dataloader CLI and establish connection with sandbox. Can we have two data loaders running on same machine ? – Salesforce User Jun 6 at 17:20

There is no need to configure multiple data loader.You can change Salesforce Login URL

For PROD use https://login.salesforce.com For Sandbox use https://test.salesforce.com
