Each server is a standalone unit and policies are defined locally

For the purpose of this scenario suppose there is a small network with one main and two lower servers. Each server has several clients. On each server, there is at least one or more policies created. The lower servers are located at the company¬ís branch offices; both servers are managed by their local administrators. Each administrator decides which policies are to be assigned to which clients within their servers. The main administrator does not intervene in the configurations made by the local administrators and he does not assign any policies to clients from their servers. From a server policy perspective, this means that Server A has no Default policy for lower servers. It also means that Server B and Server C have the N/A flag or another local policy (aside from the Default parent policy) set as a parent policy. (e.g., Servers B and C do not have any parent policies assigned from the upper server).
