I have this in my .emacs:

(when (and (file-exists-p (expand-file-name server-name server-socket-dir))
           (let ((status (call-process "/usr/bin/lsof"
                                       nil nil nil
                                       (expand-file-name server-name
             (or (not (numberp status)) (equal status 0))))
  (setq server-name (format "%s-%d" server-name (emacs-pid)))
  (add-hook 'kill-emacs-hook
    (lambda () (condition-case nil
                   (delete-file (expand-file-name server-name
                 (error nil))))
  (setenv "EDITOR" (concat "emacsclient -s " server-name)))

I regularily have 2 or 3 instances of Emacs running, this way I can
control each of them as necessary.
