The basic point of relation between the admin server and the managed server is that the admin server acts as a master manager for all the other servers including a managed server. To initiate the managed server start-up configuration, the admin server must be running. This is only a one-time process. Every managed server has a local copy of the configuration stored in it. Whenever there is an unavailability of the admin server, the managed server uses its local copy to boot. However, the managed server needs an admin server to synchronize its configurations over subsequent reboots.
