I am trying to test replication feature in FB 4 and I am doing something wrong. Probably I don’t understand the concept.
Right now I have 1 server (SuperServer) running on my laptop. I ran ALTER DATABASE ENABLE PUBLICATION and ALTER DATABASE INCLUDE ALL TO PUBLICATION against my Master (test) database. I am trying to do async replication.
Master_Repl.FDB is exact copy (in different folder) of my Master.FDB.
I have this in replication.conf file
# Database-specific settings belong here, e.g.
# (for the primary side)
database = C:\Database\Master\Master.FDB
# (for synchronous replication)
# sync_replica = sync_replica = sysdba:masterkey@otherhost:/your/replica.fdb
# (for asynchronous replication)
journal_directory = C:\Database\Master\journal
journal_archive_directory = C:\Database\Master\archive
journal_archive_timeout = 10
# (for the replica side)
database = C:\Database\Replica\Master_Repl.FDB
journal_source_directory = C:\Database\Master\ journal
I see some files in journal and archive folders, but when I update Master.FDB nothing changes in Master_Repl.FDB
I’ve read README_replication.md and instructions in replication.conf, but, evidently, I’m doing something wrong…
Can someone point me in the right direction, pls?
