Collection servers and clients

We have a fresh new enterprise install of zen asset inventory and it's
running fine in our main office (a little slower than the standalone
install when all was one box but still fine).

We don't really have many clients (about 1100) but we are spread out all
over the place with some slow WAN links. It seems like adding another
collection server in each location is fairly straight forward and should
help bandwidth. I have two questions:

1. I have a setup.iss file I'm using for a silent install of the client.
I'm guessing all I have to do is change the server listed within it to
the new collection server in each office?

2. Can I schedule the new collection servers in each remote office to
only transfer inventory data at night?

Collection servers and clients

Okay. I got it all running and it seems to be fine. My last remaining
question is can I schedule when the new offsite collection servers write
inventory data to the database?

It would be nice if machines could be scanned/inventoried at any time and
have the results go to their local collection server...but then have
their local collection server only send updates to the database at a
later time (like Midnight). I thought this was possible, but it has not
been easy for me to find.

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks

I believe this is a feature that is coming in ZEN8. Sorry.
