  • Clients only live on and are only manageable by Primary sites.

  • Hi,

    I hope the following information is helpful to you:

    1. CAS doesn't manage clients directly. Use a central administration site to configure hierarchy-wide settings and to monitor all sites and objects in the hierarchy. It coordinates site-to-site data replication, which includes the configuration of sites and clients throughout the hierarchy.
    The central administration site doesn't support site system roles that directly support clients, such as management points and distribution points.

    2. Use primary sites to manage clients. Install a primary site as a child site below a central administration site, or as the first site of a new hierarchy. A primary site that's the first site of a hierarchy creates a standalone primary site. Both child primary sites and standalone primary sites support secondary sites.

    3. Unless you need to support more clients and devices than a single primary site supports, consider installing a standalone primary site. After you install a standalone primary site, expand it if needed in the future to report to a new central administration site to scale up your deployment.
