A downstream server can be an autonomous server or a replica server. An autonomous server synchronizes the same updates as the upstream server; however, it can create its own target groups and manage its own approvals, and can download content from Microsoft Update or from the upstream server.

A replica server replicates the upstream server. The only difference between an upstream server and the replica server is the clients they manage. The replica server synchronizes the same updates as the upstream server, and has the same target groups, approvals, accepted license agreements (EULAs), and declined status as the upstream server.

Automatic approval rules are disabled on the replica server.

Note that you must be on the replica server to view the status of clients of the replica server.
