Setting Deployment Server Priority

About this task

The priority of deployment servers determines the order in which device agents will attempt another connection when their main deployment server is unavailable. You can assign the same priority level to multiple deployment servers to create a load balancing pool that supports a large number of devices.

Note: This procedure is only applicable if you have multiple deployment servers installed that use the same site name.

To set or change the priority of deployment servers:


  1. Click a device name to open its Device Information panel.
  2. Switch to the Configurations tab and scroll down to the Advanced Configurations table.
  3. Beside Deployment Server Priority, click More > Edit to open the Deployment Server Priority List dialog box.
  4. Modify the settings as needed.
  5. Click OK to save your new settings.


Note: You can also modify deployment server priority at the device group level by following the same general steps. Open a Group Information panel and edit Deployment Server Priority in the Advanced Configurations table of the Configurations tab. You will need to modify the setting for each applicable device family present in a device group.
