Mixing CLient Management Suite and Server Management Suite on one SMP server
Our current environment consists of 2800 servers and 16,000 workstations. We currently are running on one SMP server with CMS installed. We're being asked to deploy Server Management Suite Agents to the servers. This would obviously mean installation of the Server Management Suite application onto our exixting SMP NS server. If that is not adviseable, should we consider a hierarchy model where our main server manages the Workstations and a Child NS server maages the servers?
Question is can they both (CMS & SMS) reside on one system and will we have just one CMDB? We don't want to manage two separate environments with two databases - at lest if we can avoid it.
