Deployment Architecture

2 Universal Forwarders on the same host - outputs app managed by one Deployment Server

We have a setup on a linux server, where we would like to use two separate Splunk Universal Forwarders to monitor different sets of files. How do we setup the deploymentclient.conf file for the two. One of Universal Forwarder is already active and in production, we want to bring up the new Universal Forwarder on the same server, but are stuck with what configs should be given in deploymentclient.conf as the outputs.conf is managed through the Deployment Server.
Could anyone please advice on how to go about this.
Thanks.
Regards,
schava
