Changing the conflict resolution rule and scope

Modify a replicate to change the conflict resolution rule or scope.

Prerequisite: With the Modify Replicate action, you can modify a strict master replicate and its participants. A master replicate verifies that replicated tables on different servers have consistent column data types. A strict master replicate also verifies that the replicated tables have identical column names.

The conflict resolution rule determines how conflicts between replicated transactions are resolved. Each conflict resolution rule behaves differently depending on the scope.

To change the conflict resolution rule or scope:

  1. On the menu of the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix®, expand Replication, and then click Replicates.
  2. Click the Replicates tab.
  3. On the Actions menu, click Modify Replicate.

    The list displays the server groups in the domain with the participants in bold.

  4. Click Next.
  5. Specify the Conflict Resolution Scope.

    If you change the conflict resolution rule, you must also specify the scope, even if you are not changing the scope.

  6. Specify the Conflict Resolution Rule.

    You cannot change the conflict resolution rule from ignore to another rule or to ignore from another rule.

  7. To modify the replicate, click Finish.

    The options that you selected and the results of the action are displayed.
