Disabling replication for a server

Stop replication for an Enterprise Replication (ER) server while maintaining the information about deleted rows on the disabled server.

Prerequisite: For this action, the HCL OpenAdmin Tool (OAT) for Informix® requires HCL Informix version 11.70.

Use this action to temporarily stop replication on a replication server if the replicates use the time stamp or delete wins conflict resolution rule, or if you do not have enough disk space to avoid overrunning the replay position.

When replication is disabled on a server, the server does not queue its transactions, and the other replication servers in the ER domain do not queue replicated transactions for the disabled server. However, information about any deleted rows on the disabled server is saved in the delete tables. When you restart replication and synchronize the data, you can take advantage of a time stamp repair.

For example, if the server uses the delete wins conflict resolution rule and a transaction was deleted on the server before you disabled replication, when you enable replication and synchronize the data, the delete action is replicated to the other servers in the domain.

To disable replication for a server:

  1. On the OAT menu, click Replication > ER Domain.
  2. On the Routing Topology page or the Server List page, select the server for which to disable replication.
  3. On the Actions menu, click Disable Replication.
