Boundary group fallback for management points – Current Branch 1802

Configure fallback relationships for management points between boundary groups. This behavior provides greater control for the management points that clients use. For more information, see Configure boundary groups.


To prevent problems when clients can’t find an available site system in their current boundary group, define the relationship between boundary groups for fallback behavior. Fallback lets a client expand its search to additional boundary groups to find an available site system.

Relationships are configured on a boundary group properties Relationships tab. When you configure a relationship, you define a link to a neighbor boundary group. For each type of supported site system role, configure independent settings for fallback to the neighbor boundary group. For example, when you configure a relationship to a specific boundary group, set fallback for distribution points to occur after 20 minutes instead of the default of 120. For a more extensive example, see Example of using boundary groups.
