Task 4 How to Replicate Manually

As long as your computer is turned on and connected to a phone line, scheduled replication will occur at the times you set up. On some occasions, however, you'll want to replicate one or all of your databases manually—either because you never set up a schedule or you are in between scheduled times and need the updates now.

Replicate One Database

If you just need to get updates for or send changes to one database, you can replicate it manually. Right-click the bookmark for the database and choose Replication, Replicate (or with the database open, choose File, Replication, Replicate). The Replicate Database Name dialog box opens.

Pick Replication Option

Select Replicate via Background Replicator to simply replicate while you go on to other tasks; replication starts when you click OK. If you select Replicate with Options, you can override some of your replication settings for this instance only; then when you click OK another dialog box opens.

Replicate with Options

You can select another server from the With drop-down list if you aren't able to replicate with your home server and a replica copy of the database exists on the server you choose. You can also choose whether to only Send Documents to Server, only Receive Documents from Server, or both. If you choose to receive documents, you can opt to receive Full Documents, Partial Documents, Summary Only, or Smallest First. Click OK to start replicating the database.

Use the Replicator Page

To replicate one or more databases at one time, you can use the Replicator page. Click the Replication bookmark to open it.

Replicate All Databases

The Replicator page lists all the databases for which you have local replicas. When you create a new replica, an entry for that database automatically appears on the Replicator page. To simply replicate all these databases, click Start Now.

Stop Replication

As replication occurs, you can follow the progress of the replication at the bottom of the Replicator page. If you want to halt the replication before the process finishes, click Stop.

Replicate Selected Databases

Each database on the Replicator page has a check mark showing that the replication is turned on. Deselect the databases you don't want to replicate; then click Start Now. Only the selected databases will replicate.

Replicate Mail Only

If you want to replicate only your Mail, you don't have to bother with turning databases on and off. Click the down arrow on the Start Now button and select Start Mail Only Now.

Replicate High-Priority Databases

To replicate only your high-priority databases, click the down arrow next to Start Now and select Start High Priority Databases Now.

Change Database Priority

To change the replication priority for a database, click the Priority icon next to the database name. Clicking the icon toggles it between high priority and medium priority.

Sort Database List

If you can't see the entire database list on the Replicator page, it might help to sort the list to find the database you want. You can sort the list by database name, date and time the database was last replicated, or status. Click the sorting triangle on the Database, Last Run, or Status column.

Rearrange Entry Order

If you have a preferred order in which you want Notes to replicate your databases, you can drag and drop entries to customize the order. Point anywhere on an entry row and drag up or down. A black line appears showing you where the entry will go when you release the mouse button.

Change Scope

The Scope column of the Replicator page indicates by arrows whether the database is only sending documents, only receiving documents, or doing both. Click the Scope icon if you need to open the Replication Settings dialog box for that database.

Enable Scheduled Replication

To enable scheduled replication, click the Scheduled Replication Is Disabled button and select Enable Scheduled Replication. The text on the button changes to Next Replication Is at [time] if you have a schedule set up. Click that button and select Set Replication Schedule to open the Replication Schedule dialog box to specify scheduling options. Click the button and select Disable Scheduled Replication to turn off scheduled replication.
