Virtual machine configuration(Robotic Process automation)
1)when we run the deployed solution from the robotics runtime stand alone, VM gets registered with the PEGA platform.But by default , its generating one operator id that match our system host name. but how to setup multiple virtual machines on the same server for the same workgroup?
2)And also when we have multiple solutions ,like when each solution is configured with respective work group, How to run multiple solutions at a time from Robotics runtime stand alone.?
3) when we have Multiple PEGA applications , how to configure the server details in runtime config.xml?

The idea behind robots attached to Pega is that you would have one Runtime per virtual machine. A virtual machine is just that - an instance of a computer that has its own computer name so each robot takes its name from the machine. Therefore, when running robots interfacing with Pega only one per machine is supported.
Running multiple instances of the Runtime when not attached to a Pega instance is possible but requires some extra work to manage the RuntimeConfig. There is only one RuntimeConfig and it would need to be modified before starting the robot. This is an advanced topic and is better handled by provisioning multiple VMs.
Thank you very much for providing the information on this.
So VM's is by default our machine name. But in the RPA demo video in PDN , i can see multiple robots configured in the robotic automation console. How they did it ? do we have any idea on it?
So when we have multiple solutions that are configured with different work groups, but being used in same PEGA application, can't we run them at a time? if we want to run them at a time from robotics runtime what are all the configurations we need to do?
and also when we have multiple PEGA applications , we will have different server URL's. So before invoking the automatons from different PEGA applications , do we need to go and change the sever details for the respective application in runtime config.xml file or is there any other way where we can configure multiple server details in robotics section in the runtime config.xml file?
I did mean about this phrase: "So VM's is by default our machine name. But in the RPA demo video in PDN , i can see multiple robots configured in the robotic automation console. How they did it ? do we have any idea on it?"
I need distribute my automation. Do you know how can i make this? I need a VM? I need Pega Platform?
As per the Jeff Badger comments in this post, I understood that when we run the solution through robotics run time only one VM(one robotic operator ID) will be created in our personal systems.I think they would have run the same solution in multiple systems or servers .So that is the reason we might seeing the multiple robotos in their demo vedio.
