28.1 Making a Primary Server a Child

You can place a Primary Server as a child of another Primary Server. This child Primary Server no longer writes collection data directly to the ZENworks database; instead, it passes its information on to its parent Primary Server, which does the database writing. However, the child Primary Server still retrieves configuration information from the database and passes configuration information back up to the database. For this reason, the child Primary Server must have a direct connection to the ZENworks database

To make a Primary Server a child of another server:

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click the Configuration tab.

  2. In the Server Hierarchy panel, select the check box next to the Primary Server you want to make a child.

  3. Click Move to display the Move Device dialog box.

  4. Select the Primary Server that you want to be its parent server.

  5. Click OK.
