I'd like to hear more first hand experience about such a setup, pros, cons,
possible pitfalls.

Do you run RRSD and UA driervs in a separate driverset or just add the UA
server to the one also running all other drivers. Replication issues to be
aware of? Do the role/resource/entitlement tokens behave differently behave
differently when assignments have to replicate from UA server to Engine server?
Any timing issues?

Thanks, Lothar
