Hi Kevan,
           I am trying to simulate the following
1) Install geronimo at multiple location. Suppose C:/Ag1, C:/Ag2, C:/Ag3
2) Now since lib, bin and schema are read only. What I will do is to keep a copy of bin, lib and schema at a location C:/Centralloc.
3) Remove bin, lib and schema folder from Ag1, Ag2 and Ag3.
4) Now can we use C:/Centralloc/bin to start Ag1, Ag2 and Ag3? Here Ag1, Ag2 and Ag3 will have different PortOffset.

   Is it possible to have multiple installation of AG with all of them having a common bin, lib and schema. I am referring this link
(http://cwiki.apache.org/GMOxDOC20/multiple-repositories.html ) where it suggests that bin/lib/schema are read only and can be shared between instances. Is it possible to share them between different installations?

I don't understand what you are looking for... Perhaps if you explained what you want to achieve, rather than how to do it?

As you've noted, you can generate multiple server instances ( e.g. servers A, B, C) from a single installation of geronimo. I'm not sure why you'd want to share these directories in multiple installations of geronimo. It could be done using symbolic links, I guess, but the benefits are escaping me...
