You can change the Administration Server that manages client devices to a different Server using the Change Administration Server task. After the task completion, the selected client devices will be put under the management of the Administration Server that you specify. You can switch the device management between the following Administration Servers:

  • Primary Administration Server and one of its virtual Administration Servers
  • Two virtual Administration Servers of the same primary Administration Server

To change the Administration Server that manages client devices to a different Server:

  1. In the main menu, go to Assets (Devices)Tasks.

  8. If on the Finish task creation page you enable the Open task details when creation is complete option, you can modify the default task settings. If you do not enable this option, the task is created with the default settings. You can modify the default settings later, at any time.
  9. Click the Finish button.

    The task is created and displayed in the list of tasks.
