Replication Settings Dialog Box

Use the Replication Settings dialog box to configure a Replication server for on-demand replication of a vault archive.

To display this dialog box:

Run the replicated archive server wizard. When you complete the login to the replication server, the dialog box displays.


Select a connection to modify it.

Use the Selected connection section to make changes.


Select Test and then press the Test button to test the replication connection from the Source server to the Target server.

IP address or DNS name

Enter a valid DNS system name or IP address that the Target Server can use to communicate with Source Server.

In a WAN environment, you should use the IP address here. The archive servers will communicate over TCP port 3030, so make sure that port is fully opened in any firewall between the servers.


Balance the replication load between three or more servers. Server connections with a higher speed rating take priority over servers with a lower speed rating.

If you are replicating between two servers, you should select the highest speed rating (10 Mbit) regardless of real connection speed. The speed setting does not affect the actual replication transfer speed in any way, only priority.
