Virtual policies

In addition to created policies, as well as those replicated from other servers (see chapter Replication tab), the Policy Tree also contains a default parent policy, which is referred to as a virtual policy.

The default parent policy is located on an upper server in the Global policy settings and selected as Default policy for lower servers. If the server is not replicated, this policy is empty (will be explained later on).

The default primary clients policy is located on the given server (not on an upper server) in Global Policy settings and picked up in default policy for primary clients. It is automatically forced to newly connected clients (primary clients) of the given ERAS, unless they have already adopted some other policy from Policy Rules (for more information, see chapter Assigning policies to clients). Virtual policies are links to other policies located on the same server.
