Reviewing Policy Server connections
Administrator Help | Forcepoint Web Security and Forcepoint URL Filtering | v8.5.x
Use the Web > Settings > General > Policy Servers page to review Policy Server information for all Policy Server instances associated with this Forcepoint Security Manager instance.
If you have multiple Policy Server instances that share a subscription key, you can create one instance as the primary Policy Server. When you add the others as secondary instances, they receive their key information from the primary. This may help to speed up your configuration process and simplify key maintenance (in case you receive a new subscription key in the future).

Each Policy Server entry includes a short description. Primary Policy Server entries also include:

In multiple Policy Broker deployments, configure how Policy Server connects to Policy Broker on the Settings > General > Policy Brokers page.
Click Add to associate an additional Policy Server with the Security Manager, or click a Policy Server IP address or name to edit configuration information for the selected instance (see Adding or editing Policy Server instances).
Note that in some cases, Policy Server instances are added to the Security Manager automatically. For example, when a Policy Server instance is installed on the same machine as a Policy Broker replica, that Policy Server instance appears on the Policy Servers page automatically. You can still edit these instances as needed (for example, to change their description).
Mark one or more Policy Server entries and click Delete to remove the connection between the Security Manager and the selected Policy Server.

Even if you take down one Policy Server machine, then bring up a new machine and assign it the old IP address, a Policy Server instance installed on the new machine does not automatically inherit the subscription key information from the old instance. You must still delete the old instance from the Security Manager, then add the new instance.
After adding or editing a Policy Server connection, click OK on the Policy Servers page to cache your changes. Changes are not implemented until you click Save and Deploy.
