What are you doing, exactly?

I'm trying to use  M-x set-variable from an open emacs session to
set the "server-name" variable.  But the only variable that emacs
will let me set that starts with "server" is "server-mode".  I can't
even describe-variable "server-name" until after the server is
started and I still can't set-variable server-name even after it is
started.

  emacs -q --eval '(progn (setq server-name "server1") (server-start))'
  emacs -q --eval '(progn (setq server-name "server2") (server-start))'

and you can use:

  emacsclient --server-file=server1 my-file
  emacsclient --server-file=server2 my-other-file
This works, thanks!  But I don't think the procedure in the
documentation works.?
