How do I use the multitool chreplica command

1.   to associate replica london with host vobserver.samecs.com in the database of the current VOB replica.

If you change the server host for a VOB at your site you need to inform all the other replicas of this change. This can be done using the multitool chreplica command with the –host option.

multitool chreplica –host vobserver.samecs.com london
Updated replica information for "london".

2.   to make replica sydney a permissions preserving replica.

If you when you imported a VOB replica using the multitool mkreplica –import command you imported the replica as a non-preserving replica (i.e. neither the owner, primary group nor the permissions on the files are imported and it is the importers credentials (owner, group, umask, etc… that are used) you can change this at a later date using the multiool chreplica command. To change a replica to become permissions preserving (i.e. the permission on the files at the master replica site will be propagated to the replica in question) you use the –perm·s_preserve option.

multitool chreplica –perm sydney@/vobs/samecs
Updated replica information for "sydney".

3.   to make replica Sydney a nonpreserving replica

Same as 2. but this time you are making the replica a non-preserving replica (i.e. the owner, group and element permissions are not taken from the master replica). To do this you run the multitool chreplica command with the              -npre·serve option.

multitool chreplica –npr sydney@/vobs/samecs
Updated replica information for "sydney".

4.   to mark replica sydney as not connected.

To mark a replica as not being connected (i.e. there is no direct IP connectivity) in the current VOB replicas database use the multitool chreplica command with the -nconn·ected option.

multitool chreplica –nconn sydney@\samecs
Updated replica information for "sydney".
