An MSP may run multiple Administration Servers. It can be inconvenient to administer several separate Administration Servers, so a hierarchy can be applied. A master/slave configuration for two Administration Servers provides the following options:
A slave Administration Server inherits policies and tasks from the master Administration Server, thus preventing duplication of settings.
Selections of devices on the master Administration Server can include devices from slave Administration Servers.
Reports on the master Administration Server can contain data (including detailed information) from slave Administration Servers.
