Multi-Server installation is recommended for large deployments or when the Policy Distribution Service should be placed outside the corporate firewall to ensure that users receive regular policy updates when they are outside the perimeter. Multi-Server installation must be done on at least two separate servers. If you attempt to install the separate Policy Distribution Service and the Management Service on the same server, the installation fails. For more information, see Section 3.0, Performing a Single-Server Installation for a single-server installation.
Multi-Server installation should begin with the Policy Distribution Service installation on a secured server either outside or inside the corporate firewall. For more information, see Section 5.0, Performing the Policy Distribution Service Installation.
After the Policy Distribution Service is installed, the Management Service installation should follow. For more information, see Section 6.0, Performing the Management Service Installation.
It is recommended the Management Console also be installed on this server. For more information, see Section 7.0, Performing the Management Console Installation.
