Load balancing is handled on each client, using information that is returned from the policy server each time a session is established.
If a session cannot be established because the policy server is unavailable (or offline) that policy server is marked as unavailable, and no further pmrun sessions are sent to it until the next retry interval.
To view the current status of the policy server
Run the following command:
# pmloadcheck [-f]
If the policy server cannot be contacted, the last known information for this host is reported.
You can remove the Privilege Manager Server or PM Agent configurations by using the –u option with the following commands:
Take care when you remove the configuration from a policy server, particularly if the policy server is a primary server with secondary policy servers in the policy group, as agents joined to the policy group will be affected.

Privilege Manager for Unix supports a direct upgrade installation from version 6.0. The Privilege Manager software in this release is provided using platform-specific installation packages.
If you are currently running Privilege Manager for Unix 6.0, it may be possible to perform a direct upgrade installation depending on the package management software on your platform (Note: Direct upgrade installations are not possible with Solaris.pkg packages). If you perform a direct upgrade installation, your previous configuration details are retained. Where a direct upgrade is not possible, you must first remove the previously installed package, and install and configure Privilege Manager as a new product installation.
