Administration-Server Architecture

On each host on which it installs a component of K2, the K2 installer also installs a K2 Administration Server. The Administration Server takes care of interactions between the components of K2 on the local host, and between the local host and other machines.

Furthermore, for each installation as a whole there is one instance, on one host only, of the K2 Master Administration Server (see Figure 2-6). The Master Administration Server communicates with all the other Administration Servers. It is through the Master Administration Server that you administer your K2 installation.

At installation time, the K2 Ticket Server and the Administration Servers on each host machine are configured to connect to the Master Administration Server.
