I've noticed that all of the FoE manuals are pretty poor (lots of important stuff missing, in wrong order, etc).
May I ask how you're 'managing' (patching, avg) your secondary servers? All of our servers are blades within enclosures and because of the nature of FOE (secondary server being a clone of the primary) our automated services cannot work - patching/avg would have to be promoted manually. Is this how you're having to service them?
tlwoodstx and malcolp,
Thank you for posting your experiences. I can make updates to the FoE docs after confirming the settings change you've mentioned.
