Has the process for doing this changed since the thread that addressed the issues a couple of years ago.  
I am interested in doing it with JT Alerts and DX Lab Commander

Not sure which thread you're referring to.

The way I do it is to set up each slice with a different DAX and CAT , and for each instance of WSJT-X you should add a command line parameter ( --rig-name=<name>)  for that instance. It will create two separate directories with log files and such.

As usual, Ria's instructions are perfect. 

I'm not gonna lie, having 20M and 40M WSJT-X FT8 going simultaneously is a treat. Combined with JT-Bridge to integrate across OS to MacLoggerDX, with the ability to click on any desired CQ and have the radio and transmit slice follow automatically....

MAGIC!!!! :-)

Thanks, that is how I have done it previously.   I'm not sure what you mean by "IT will create two separate directories ".

I spoke too soon.  Using Commander, eventually A follows B and both instances end up on same frequency.

I have two instances now set via two TCP ports in SmartCAT and work well.  How are you logging?  Log to a third party logging application of just WSJTX's log and then ADIF import to logging software ?
