Using policy rules

Our next example involves automatically assigning policies based on policy rules. This method is complementary and should be used in combination with previously described scenarios, rather than as a standalone scenario.


If each server is managed by a local administrator, each administrator can create individual policy rules for their clients. In this scenario it is important that no conflicts exist between policy rules, such as when the upper server assigns a policy to clients based on the policy rules, while the lower server simultaneously assigns separate policies based on local policy rules.


In the end, a centralized system greatly reduces the probability of conflicts, as the entire management process takes place on the main server.
