If the managed media server’s device and media data are kept on a local database on the managed media server, the central administration server cannot delegate jobs to it. Instead, you can copy policies, selection lists, and configuration settings from the central administration server to the managed media server. A persistent network connection to the central administration server is not needed when the jobs are run locally on the managed media server.
If you associate the policies and selection lists on the central administration server, jobs are created there. You can then copy the jobs to the managed media server. You can also copy the policies and selections lists to the managed media server, and then associate them. The jobs are created on the managed media server.
Use the same names for objects on the central administration server and all of the managed media servers that you want to copy jobs to. For example, use the same name for a device pool on the central administration server and on the managed media server. Then, it is not necessary to customize settings or names for each managed media server that you copy jobs to.
