Replication targets are associated with a primary resource called a ``Replication` <https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/api/#/en/iaas/latest/Replication>`__ located in another availability domain in the same or different region. The replication retrieves the delta of data between two snapshots of a source file system and sends it to the associated ReplicationTarget, which applies it to the target file system. All operations (except DELETE) must be done using the associated replication resource. Deleting a ReplicationTarget allows the target file system to be exported. Deleting a ReplicationTarget does not delete the associated Replication resource, but places it in a FAILED state. For more information, see File System Replication.
