I have NPM installed in our environment and we are currently looking at evaluate NTA, and it looks like you must install NTA on the same server as NPM. If not, you will receive a prompt to download and install NPM on the new server.
I've just purchase NTA along with an additional NPM polling engine. I have basically the same question. Does NTA have to be installed on the same server as NPM or can I install it on another server to maximize hardware performance? Also, if NTA does have to be installed on an NPM server, can I install it on the additional polling engine instead of the main NPM installation?
