IMHO you should run replication between clustered servers, mainly because of your out-of-synch concern. In addition to that, the Cluster Replicator doesn't initialize databases (ie if you request a new replica via adminp it would never become initialized if there was no 'normal' scheduled replication) As for the claim of the software vendor, this seems weird as usually notes replication is quite aware of which documents are in the database and which ones aren't. Does it do the file transfer via notes or outside? (read: Does it bypass the normal replication process) As for changing the documents, usually you don't need to reboot the servers. Just to be sure bounce the replicator once you've done the changes: tell replica quit and then load replica (if you had 4 replicators running do the load replica thing 4 times) Hope this helps Greetings, Michel firstname.lastname@example.org Sent by: To: DOMINO400@midrange.com owner-domino400@mi cc: drange.com Subject: Should one run replicator in a cluster situation? 05/03/2001 21:10 Please respond to DOMINO400 We have multiple clusters. I can understand that you would need to run replication from a server in one cluster to a server in another cluster in order to sync up databases, (such as the NAB). However should you have connection documents to do replication between servers in the same cluster? One software vendor says no. I just am concerned in case the clusters are out of sync. What fired this off is that this vendor sells a product to copy a database from one server to another, with an option to make it a replica copy. Well, if we do a File, Replication, New Replica then we don't have any problems. However if we use their software then certain thinks get doubled up - namely some user folders and lots of sent mail. They are claiming it is because replica is kicking in during the large email file initial replication. If I change the Connection documents between the two servers in the one cluster, and disable replication. Do I have to shutdown the servers for the changes to take effect?
