Managing multiple sites from a single Enterprise Server
Article ID: KB308 email a link to this article

It is possible to use the Enterprise Server to manage separate organisations from a single installation.  This may be of use if you are providing a managed service to separate groups of users.

Each organisation in the Enterprise Server contains its own encryption keys, workstations, users, licences, recovery passwords etc. 

It is important to keep in mind that Licences are added to the organisation itself not the Enterprise Server as a whole.  Therefore you should ensure you have obtained the appropriate amount of licences you will require for each organisation as separate purchases.

It is not possible to export individual organisations from an Enterprise Server.  If you may require an Organisation move away from the Enterprise Server at any point in the future then it should be created from the start in a separate installation of the Enterprise Server.
