	I have two boxes with two sensors apiece that I manage from Snortcenter2.
I only use one snortcenter agent per box but possible differ from your
configuration in that my sensors are on different interfaces (eth1 and 2 in
my case).
If your sensors are both linked to a single interface then it gets more
complicated as
both configurations generated by Snortcenter could have the same name which
may be why
you have gone for two versions of snortcenter agent. I think I would try
aliasing the
interface, which I think is possible.
	I did have a bit of a problem with version 2 of Snortcenteragent, I
reverted to 1
and all was well.
