Viewing Replication Channel Information

The channel state shows that a replication channel is enabled and active, or else indicates the reason why replication is not currently in progress. The channel details give further information about a replication channel.

Deleting The channel is being deleted.
Inactive The channel is not replicating because the user has disabled it.
Needs Attention This status is displayed for the following reasons:
  • The channel is not replicating due to an error. The Details column on the Channels page explains why the channel needs attention.
  • The target DB system is INACTIVE, that is, the channel is created or updated while the DB system is in INACTIVE state. Pending actions are applied if the DB system is started.
Updating A channel operation is going on.
