I installed a master and a slave server to comprise a server farm. And can
connect to both servers seperately. But in a real world when loading becomes
an issue, is it possible for Afaria clients auto-switch to either server
available?

BTW, so called "server farm" is the "Channels\Replication", wright? I can
not open the Afaria administrator for the slave server. Is it normal?

The Afaria Client doe not have an auto-switch feature. Most customers want
to use their own load balancing solution, such as a Cisco content switch, MS
ISA Server or simply DNS round-robin.

NO, it is NOT normal that you cannot open the Afaria Administrator on the
replication server. I will reply to your earlier post.
