There are times when you may want to set up replication without going through the Setup Wizard.  To that end, Dbvisit Replicate has the response file.  A sample response file is created after you run the Setup Wizard one time.  The file is called, name_of_your_replication-sample_response_file.txt.  For example, 

repfileexample-sample_response_file.txt  or  

demo-sample_response_file.txt

The file is created in the directory specified in the Setup Wizard along with all of the other files.  The contents of the response file are all of the answers that you supplied to the Setup Wizard.

You now have a template file. If are going to run the Setup Wizard again for different machines you can edit the response file, put in the appropriate server names, users, pwds, etc and then run the Setup Wizard again with the response file.  This will then create all of the appropriate files that you need.  In the example we rename the file to rtest-sample_response_file.txt and then edit the fields.  

Run the Setup Wizard with the new response file:

oracle@source_machine[/home/oracle/v28/replicate]: ./dbvrep setup wizard respfile /home/oracle/rtest/rtest-sample_response_file.txt

 

The Setup Wizard will now run without prompting or waiting for answers. It will populate all of the answers from the response file.  The end result will be as if you went through the Setup Wizard.  Files and scripts will be waiting in the new location specified.
