We have installed Simpana v11 SP3, configured a Replication Set with a pair replicating flat files of a Billing software from D:/data of a primary (live) server to standby server D:/replica .. Basic replication is working good, but have few queries as below :
1. How to configure the CDR interval for replication? can we set differnet replication intervals for different replication sets?
2. Will replication continue to happen locally forever? even after the connectivity from these servers is down to the Commserve for long periods or a day drive. If yes,Please point me to the documentation where it states so.
3. Also we have configured recovery points/VSS snapshots of D: drive & scheduled hourly with auto mount to P: drive which working perfectly. Again will this continue to function even if link to commserve is down?
4. Scenario : Primary servres fails (system crash, LAN issue) ..we will shift the billing to secondary server which will use CDR destination folder to pick up files and coninue the production. Now once the primary is up, how do I 'reverse sync' the new data from the standby (destination) to primary (source).
Note : We can not use the backup of recovery points and then do resore sync as stated in doumentation.
