In reference to this document: Configure a content management (CM) server
Currently we have a 2 server CM setup, and both of them are configured as processing/reporting server roles. This is Sitecore 8.2. I don't know if this is even a supported setup for 8, but it's just to provide background.
We are currently planning out infrastructure for Sitecore 9 and took a look at what this should look like. Scaling out horisontally doesn't seem to be a problem, however at the end of the document it states:
If you have multiple CM servers, you must set up a dedicated Reporting Service instance.
This sounds, to me, like
- It cannot be on either of the CM servers
- There can be only 1 dedicated Reporting Service instance
Is this correct? Or will it be possible to assign the Reporting Service instance to one (or both) of the CM instances?
