IssueWhat is the maximum number of Remote Administration sessions that can be supported by Authentication Manager?
CauseRSA Security does not document a physical limit to the number of Remote Mode clients an administrator may add to a version 5 and beyond ACE/Server (Authentication Manager) environment.
ResolutionThere is no established physical limit to the number of Remote Administration clients supported by Authentication Manager in Windows.  However, in practice there will be performance considerations which can be attributed to the environment (OS, Processor capabilities, memory, networking [IP addresses], and number of replicas) and customer expectations (speed of reports, size of logs, and potential authentication delay).
