I'm trying to create two EOS chains - I am under the impression that each chain should have a unique chain_id, but when I start them, they both come up with the same chain_id (checked via cleos get info)

I checked the config.ini and didn't see anything that indicated how to do it. How do I set the Chain ID to something else?

chain_id is a hash of the fields in genesis.json. Change any field to get a different id.
