Basic FNMS for On Prem 2002 Questions for a Stone Cold Newby
Thanks for the patience and the assist!!
For now, I need to stand up a lab but in the not too distant I'll need to deploy for a couple of customers and so I have a few questions. I have done some reading but the answers are not clear.
Is a Beacon functionally a 'remote agent' and fair to say that you don't need a beacon if an agent is deployed?
I am also trying to assemble architecture ahead of the need and one of the things I have not been able to find are architecture sizing recommendations for different sized environments as well as other architecture guidelines and recommendations.
All thoughts very welcome!
Scaling is covered in the requirements documentation: https://docs.flexera.com/FlexNetManagerSuite2020R2/EN/SysReq/index.html#FNMS_sys_req/RN_sys_req_hard...
The installation documentation has a architecture diagram: https://docs.flexera.com/FlexNetManagerSuite2020R2/EN/WebHelp/PDF%20Documents/On-Prem/Installing%20F... (see "Design the Topography")
The Beacon installer does come with the Agent component, so you dont have to* install the Agent on a Beacon. *To be exact, you must not install the Agent on a Beacon, doing so will corrupt the Beacon.
