Reverse Replication

  1. On Production System M11, navigate to Shares > PROJECTS > LOCAL > P1. P1 is empty because the first update from the new source system (the original target) converts the original project on the original source system into a replication package. This example employs a project-level replication action that replicates all of the shares in the project. Therefore, all of the shares that were present under this local project are now present under the replication package, leaving the local project empty.
  2. Navigate to Shares > PROJECTS > LOCAL.
  3. Delete P1. It is safe to delete this empty project because its contents have been moved to the replication package as a result of the replication reversal from the original target.
  4. Navigate to Shares > PROJECTS > REPLICA > M5:P1 > Replication.
  5. Click Reverse the direction of replication and set the project name. New Project Name=P1
  6. On SMB Client System, Map network drive \\\S1 (user=root, password=pppp$1234). Files F1.txt and F2.txt are listed.
  7. On Production System M11, navigate to Shares > PROJECTS > P1 > Replication.
  8. On Action line TARGET=M5, click Edit entry.
  9. Click image:Add item Schedule and set the frequency. Frequency=Half-Hour at 00 minutes past the hour.
  10. On Action line TARGET=M5, click Update now. This directs Disaster Recovery System M5 to convert the its local project P1 back into replication package M11:P1.
  11. Monitor the UPDATES column on action line TARGET=M5 and wait for the replication update to complete.
  12. On Disaster Recovery System M5, navigate to Shares > PROJECTS > LOCAL > P1. P1 is empty because the project was converted back into a replication package.
  13. Navigate to Shares > PROJECTS > LOCAL.
  14. To enable the next reversal to convert the replication package to a project named P1, delete P1.
