Lansweeper allows you to use multiple Windows computers to scan and deploy changes in your network. The machines scanning and deploying in your network, so-called "scanning servers", only have the Lansweeper Server service installed and push data to a central Lansweeper database. Each scanning server can be configured separately.
Having multiple scanning servers is recommended if you have several thousand assets or remote sites connected through TCP/IP or VPN connections. A multi scanning server setup allows for more efficient load balancing, as the scanning load, deployment requests and network traffic are divided among multiple machines.
Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\Key\Encryption.txt from the machine hosting the web console to the new scanning server, replacing the default file generated on the server. The Encryption.txt file is a key used to encrypt and decrypt credentials submitted in Lansweeper and must be the same on all servers hosting a Lansweeper component. If you spread out components over several machines, each server will have a unique file by default, and you'll need to copy the file to all servers manually so the encryption key is the same on all servers.
