Realizing a template

Instantiate a template on Enterprise Replication (ER) servers.

Prerequisite: Before you can instantiate a template, you must define the template. See Defining a template
To instantiate a template:
  1. On the menu of the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix®, expand Replication, and then click Replicates.
  2. Click the Templates tab.
  3. In the list of templates, select the template to instantiate.
  4. On the Actions menu, click Realize Template.
  5. In the Available Servers list, select the servers on which to instantiate the template.
    Tip: Start typing the server name in the Server filter text box to filter the list.
  6. To instantiate the template on the servers with the default options, click Finish, or click Next to specify any of the following options, and then click Finish.
    • Create missing tables. When this option is selected, tables that exist on the master replicate server but not on the target servers are created automatically on the target servers. This option is selected by default. The dbspace for the created tables is set by default to the same dbspace as the database.
    • Apply replicated data with table owner privileges. Specify that the owner of the source table is the owner of the tables that are created when the template is realized. By default, the tables are owned by user informix.
    • Set the server to receive only. Specify that the target servers are receive-only servers. By default, the servers both send and receive replicated data.
    • Synchronize data. Specify a server to act as the source for data synchronization on the servers on which the template is instantiated. Specify how to handle rows on the target servers that are not present on the data source server. By default, extra rows are deleted from the target servers.
