Personal Gateway - Multiple Computers

I've installed a personal gateway on my work laptop and my personal laptop (which I sometimes use to connect to my employer's network over VPN). Both gateways depend on my single account. What is the proper or best way to "toggle" between the 2 gateways? For example, do I need to physically uninstall one to use the other? How do I get my datasets to recognize both so I can easily choose which machine I want the refresh to run off of?

Hi @robarivas,

 

You can only have one Personal mode gateway running for each Power BI account. If you install another Personal mode gateway for the same account, even on a different computer, the most recent installation replaces the existing previous installation. For On-Premise gateway,  you can install multiple On-premises data gateways on different computers, and manage them all from the same Power BI gateway management interface.

 

Reference: Install the On-premises data gateway

Re: Personal Gateway - Multiple Computers

I have configured the same datasources on both the systems. 
I go to schedule refresh page and manually select the one that currently is online. 

 

If you have a VM, install gateway on VM, configure your datasets their and login to VM, to make the gateway online.
