So when I look in any frontend, I see Settings -> General -> Database
Configuration -> unique identifier. It seems that if I set that
identifier, the database records my frontend settings in the database
under that name. When I look at localhost:6544 I see Frontend Status
that shows all my frontends that have the unique identifier set.
Is that what you are talking about??
