AM Appliance with different DMZ and Internal sites

Hi there,

So, I'm trying to do the following:

- Use Access Manager Appliance but,
- Have different sites available on a DMZ and Internal
- DMZ appliances would not be able to access some backends the Internal only AG accesses

With regular Access Manager I can create two different AG cluster, for inside and DMZ, and add those different sites to each of them.
But I don't see a way to do it with Access Manager Appliance.
From what I can see, all Access Manager Appliances must publish the same sites, and have access to the backend servers.
So, the questions are:
- Is there any way to circumvent the limitation of not being able to use AG with AM Appliance?
- Is there a way to achieve what I want with only AM Appliances? If so, how?

Thanks

You can kinda get around this by having 2 appliances clustered. You configure your load balancer or DNS to only use the appliance that has the
connectivity. The downside is that your health will always been yellow. Keep in mind that there is still communication required for the 2 appliance to
talk to each other for replication etc.

What is the issue running 2 appliances? Not having redundancy?
