New Replication Schema Dialog Box

Use the New Replication Schema dialog box to define replication between archive servers located in different time zones.

To display this dialog box:

Expand the tree of a replicated vault and double-click Replication settings. In the Replication Settings dialog box, click New Schema.

Schema name

Type the schema name.

Folders that are part of the schema

Folders included in the replication schema.

Add Folder

Displays the Select Folder dialog box, where you select the parts of the vault to include in this replication schema.

To schedule all files in the vault for replication, select the top vault name. Ensure that you have sufficient storage space on each archive server in the schema to host the full replicated archive. If the vault being replicated contains many files, the initial replication process might take a while because all archives are replicated to the defined archive servers.

To replicate only parts of the vault such as the projects folder, select that folder in the tree. All files in the folder and its subfolders are scheduled for replication. Use this method for large vaults: schedule replication for folders in which files are often updated and use on-demand replication for less frequently accessed folders.

Remove Folder

Removes the selected folder from the list.

Connections to replicate

Select the servers between which replication should be scheduled. File archives are replicated to the Target Server from the Source Server.

Replication interval for selected connection

Schedule the replication interval for each target server/source server pair in the Connections to replicate list. To set the same interval for multiple connections, press CTRL while selecting connections.

Predefined interval

Schedule when replication should run between the selected source and target servers. You can select a predefined schedule or assign your own schedule by selecting User defined schedule.

Interval string

If you select a user-defined schedule, type an Interval string to define when the replication should occur.

Define the format for the string:
  • Minute - Select from 0 through 59, where 0 is on the hour.
  • Hour - Select between 0 and 23, where 0 is midnight.
  • Weekday - Select between 1 and 7, where 1 is Monday.


Displays the Advanced Schema Settings dialog box, where you limit the files in a folder that are replicated when the schedule is run.
