Uploading schedules from Microsoft Project using HP PPM plug in for multiple instances of HP PPMC

Would appreciate understanding how and if it is possible for users to upload schedules from Microsoft Project using the HP PPM plug-in when a user needs to upload to different instances of the HP PPMC environment which reside on different servers.
Our client uses a version of the HP PPMC tool the we currently upload schedules to via the Microsoft Project HP PPM plug in utility. Need to understand how to upload a different clients schedules on a different instance of HP PPMC. How does the user distinguish which instance (server) of the HP PPMC to upload to if there are multiple instances that a user needs to upload scheduled to for different clients that use different instances on differenet servers.
Would appreciate any information or contacts regarding how a user would upload schedules to different instances of HP PPMC using the Microsoft HP PPM plug in or other utility in this type of enviroment. Thanks

When you sync a work plan between PPM & MSP, a association "link" is created between the specific PPM project and the MSP file. If you intend to upload the same MSP file to different PPM projects and/or instances, you just need to remove this association before you upload it so you can specify a different PPM project.

From within the MSP work plan:

HP PPM Center > Project Details > Remove Association


If you want to upload to a different PPM server:

HP PPM Center > Clear Server Default

Thanks Erik, after removing the association and then requesting to upload the MSP file with the association removed, the PPM plug in prompts for the PPM server instance, this is what I needed to know. Thanks again.
