How do I prepare a local replica to use on my Domino server?
A replica or case database that was originally created locally, and now needs to be replicated to your MasterFile Domino server, must first be properly prepared. This article explains how to do that prior to creating the new replica.
Preparing the local replica
You must sign the local replica or database unless you are absolutely sure that when you initially created it, the Create database dialog's Domino server filed was pre-filled with your server name. That would have created the local replica correctly for replicating to your server. You can check that the database was created correctly by looking at its ACL as follows:
- On the Workspace, right click on the replica's icon and choose Application > Access Control
- the two entries shown here.
Note that if you modify any fields in the ACL screen in any way, you risk loosing access to your database; troubleshooting these errors are not part of your annual MasterFile support and maintenance and will be billed per incident or hourly by our professional services department. Please email support if necessary.
Signing the local replica if needed
You are asked to confirm the server name or enter it if missing.
- If you are unsure of what it is, please check with your MasterFile administrator.
- If you enter it incorrectly, your server replica will not function even after replication.
If the server name is missing, then it was not set during MasterFile installation. Please see the installation guide to set this option in your MasterFile User Settings.
