Can I log into Manager from any machine in a multi-machine Federated site?

I have a multi-machine ArcGIS Server 10.5 site with two machines that is Federated with a Portal for ArcGIS deployment.. I have no problem logging into the ArcGIS Server Manager on the machine that I selected as the server when Federating the site, but I cannot log into Manager from the other machine.


I have isolated the cause to the generateToken portal endpoint and have a short Python script that replicates the issue.


If I call the generateToken endpoint and attempt to exchange a Portal token for a Server token using the server name that appears in the Servers tab in Portal, then request succeeds.


However, if I set the referer to the other machine that is part of the ArcGIS Server site, it fails with


   {"error":{"code":400,"message":"Unable to generate token","details":["Unable to generate token for this server"]}}


Reading between the lines of the documentation, I can see how this may be the intended and correct behavior, but since the ArcGIS Server rest endpoints can be accessed from any machine in the site and since we can publish services to any of the machines, it seemed odd that Manager would somehow be an exception.


Is there any documentation that I may have missed that addresses this point specifically?
