  5. On the Start Replicate page, select the participants to start.
    • To start all the participants in the replicate, select the All Participants check box.
    • To start specific participants, select the check box for each participant that you want to start.
  6. To perform an initial synchronization for the replicates that you are starting, complete these steps:
    1. Select the Synchronize data check box.
    2. Select the data source server for synchronization from the list of servers.
    3. Specify how to handle rows on the target server that are not present on the data source server.
      • Delete: Delete the extra rows from the target server.
      • Keep: Keep the extra rows on the target server.
      • Merge: Keep the extra rows on the target servers and replicate them to the source server.
