A typical example of this scenario is using multiple Application role servers to manage a large number of console connections. This example also serves to address High Availability (HA) requirements. For the HA scenario, deploy at least three Application role servers:

  • The PAS, which Patch Manager does not use for console connections.
  • At least two Secondary Application Servers (SAS), which can segregate groups of console users and/or back one another up in case of a failure.

Additional Application Role Servers for High Availability (HA)


This HA scenario scales to as many Application role servers as you require. If necessary, each console user could have a dedicated Application role server for their console connection.
