I've got a couple of questions regarding the SQL database and the console configuration options. For a remote console, it has its own database and rolls the data it collects up to the cental console to be added to its database right? If you have 2 console installations on a LAN both using the same original database, would they both technically be a central console? In my case, one console is installed on the server and another on my desktop with the server as a distribution server.
Well for purposes of the rollup they could both be used as the central console. But only the IP address or machine you select to tell the remote console to rollup to is going to be the one seeing traffic from the rollup.
They both, however, will be able to view the rollup data as they are using the same database.
I hope this answers you question please let me know if it does not.
