Installation of FCS secondary Management Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    I have installed single forefront Client security server, having all roles installed on the same box at Head office location, where 600 users are reported to FCS. Apart from this we have other location where having 500 sytems which are reported to HO Management server.

    My question is,  can we install another FCS server (Management Server, Datbase & reporting server) at  other location so  systems which are located over there will be reported. That will save the bandwith which is used for forwarding events to HO forefront server.

    Kindly suggest is it possible to install FCS server to other location, as I don't how to do this.

    Thanks.

    Regards,

    Vinod

    Thank you for your post.

    Yes, you could install another FCS deployment at other location, then install FCS enterprise manager to centrally report the two location's FCS deployment in one server. Please read FCS enterprise manager article for details.

    Microsoft Forefront Client Security Enterprise Manager
