UCMDB 10.01 Linux HA-Cluster: Data Flow Probes on the same UCMDB-Server

Our partner is working at a big Automated Network Management project for a german customer.

In this project we will install UCMDB 10.01 in high avalaibility mode on a linux cluster.
We will also use the Data Flow Probes for CMS synchronization (import/export of excel/csv files) but not for discovery.
As you can see in the attached picture the usual system architecture is to have the Data Flow Probes outside of the cluster connecting to the load balancer.
The customer asked if it is possible to install the Probes on the same UCMDB-Server of the cluster and not in an additional external server.
From a technical point of view should be possible and I didn’t find any advice in the installation guide to not do so.

Do you think there could be any problems with this architecture? Would it be not supported from HP?
Thank you in advance.

Installing UCMDB with Probe on the same machine could have performance implications.

It's not recommended by HP.

Another point, to export data from XLS, you'll need probe runing on Windows box.


As a side note... Most of UCMDB customers running UCMDB behind LB with remote probes.
