Dbvisit Replicate (version XTD and MAX) supports One-to-many replication and this can be specified during the setup wizard.
During Step 1 of the setup wizard, more databases can be added. In the following example, there are 3 databases added. If you want add another database use option "add":
Step 1 - Describe databases ======================================== The first step is to describe databases used in the replication. There are usually two of them (source and target); however, there can be just one (when source and target is the same) or more than two (one-to-many or other complex configurations.) Following databases are now configured: 1: Oracle orcl, SYS/**, SYSTEM/*, dbvrep/**, USERS/TEMP, dbvrep/, ASM:YES,TZ: +00:00Â 2: Oracle test11202, SYS/**, SYSTEM/*, dbvrep/**, USERS/TEMP, dbvrep/, ASM:NO,TZ: +00:00Â 3: Oracle dbvisit210_d112f, SYS/**, SYSTEM/*, dbvrep/**, USERS/TEMP, dbvrep/, ASM:NO,TZ: +00:00Â Enter number of database to modify it, or "add", or "done": [done] add
During Step 2 of the setup wizard the configuration pairs can be specified. In this example, orcl is the source database and test11202 and dbvisit210_d112f are the target databases. If you want to add another pair use option "add" else press enter on keyboard.
Step 2 - Replication pairs ======================================== The second step is to set source and targets for each replication pair. This is usually just choosing the first database as source and the second one as target, but many more configurations are possible. Following replication pairs are now configured: Following replication pairs are now configured: 1: orcl(Oracle) ==> test11202 (Oracle), DDL: yes, fetcher: no, process suffix: (no suffix), compression: no, encryption: no, network timeout: 60, prepare type: single-scn, data load: dp_networklink 2: orcl(Oracle) ==> dbvisit210_d112f (Oracle), DDL: yes, fetcher: no, process suffix: (no suffix), compression: no, encryption: no, network timeout: 60, prepare type: single-scn, data load: dp_networklink Enter number of replication pair to modify it, or "add", or "done": [done]
During Step 4 of the setup wizard the processes configuration of each server has to be specified:
Step 4 - Process configuration ===Following processes are defined: 1: MINE on orcl Host: rac11202node1, SMTP: YES, SNMP: NO 2: APPLY on test11202 Host: dbvisit400, SMTP: YES, SNMP: NO 3: MINE1 on orcl Not used, work done by MINE. 4: APPLY1 on dbvisit210_d112f Host: dbvisit210, SMTP: YES, SNMP: NO Enter number of process to modify it, or "done": [done]
Note that the MINE process MINE is shared for both the APPLY processes APPLY and APPLY1. The process MINE1 is not used because it is more efficient to only use 1 MINE process (MINE) for all the target databases.
The Next steps (Nextsteps.txt) displayed when the setup wizard has completed will show the actions to be taken for each server and will include the steps that need to run for all target databases.
Any commands that are issues in the Dbvisit Replicate command console will apply to the default replication pair (MINE → APPLY). This includes listing and resolving conflicts. To issues commands against the other replication pair (MINE1 → APPLY1), use the choose replication command to choose this replication pair.
