Access the Server Manager, and click the Caching tab.
Click the Configure Proxy Array Member link.
The Configure Proxy Array Member page is displayed.
In the Poll Host field in the Parent Array section of the page, type the host name of the proxy in the parent array to be polled for the PAT file.
This proxy is usually the master proxy of the parent array.
In the Port field in the Parent Array section of the page, type the port number of the proxy in the parent array that you will poll for the PAT file.
In the URL field, type the URL of the PAT file on the master proxy.
If you have created a PAT mapping on your master proxy, type the mapping into this URL field.
(Optional) In the Headers File field in the Parent Array section of the form, type the full path name for a file with any special headers that must be sent with the HTTP request for the PAT file, such as authentication information.
This field is optional.
Click Restart Required.
The Apply Changes page is displayed.
Click the Restart Proxy Server button to apply the changes.
If your proxy array is routing through a parent array, you need information about the members of the parent array. This information is sent from the parent array in the form of a PAT file.
