I have been trying to use AS7 for the first time, I have read
I am able to bootup my AS7 in domain controller and adding server instances either through management console or through host.xml <server> tag. Unfortunalty I have to do this atleast 200 times. Which brings me to the following question.
Is there a way to configure AS7 Domain controller or Host controller in such a way that it boots up with "X" number of instances without copying and pasting some tags or folders "X" times? Copying an pasting is not a huge problem but carefully changing their port-offset, names, group attributes etc is.

You could use the AS7 management API directly. There are a few options: Either you use the java API, execute operations from a bash script using the CLI or the http/json API from a scripting language of your choice.
