(OMW) Support Tip: Instrumentation with multiple management servers

Multiple management servers can deploy policies to nodes that have an HTTPS agent.  Every policy on a node is owned by the management server that deployed it.  This same ownership concept does not exist for instrumentation.  

Management servers all deploy instrumentation to the same folder on managed nodes. Therefore, one must ensure that one management server does not make inappropriate changes to instrumentation deployed from another management server.

If the same instrumentation needs to be deployed from multiple management servers, it is important to make sure that all management servers have the same version of the instrumentation. Otherwise, it is possible for one management server to overwrite instrumentation that already exists on a node.

Example:

- If instrumentation is deployed explicitly using the console, this can overwrite instrumentation that another management server deployed.

It is also important to make sure that one management server does not remove instrumentation that is required by another management server's policies.

Example:

- If instrumentation is deployed explicitly using the console and the option to "remove all existing instrumentation before deploying new instrumentation" is selected, the instrumentation that the other management server deployed is removed.
