Importing Replication Data

You can import replication data that has been exported from another server. You would typically import data into a secondary or slave server.

To import replication data:

  1. Navigate to any Administration page, such as Administration > System, and then select Import from the Action menu in the upper right of the page.
  2. Select the replication data file that you want to import.
  3. Select the import options as follows:
    Option Description

    Disable auto-import

    Select to disable automatic import for component versions during the import procedure. The default is selected. For information on automatic import of component versions, see Importing Versions Automatically.

    Override resource mapping

    Select this if you want resource mapping for environments and application environments to be imported and the existing resource mapping overridden. The default is deselected.

    Merge strategy

    Determines the merge strategy to be used during import. Select one of the following:
    • Override
    • Merge without conflicts
    • Merge with master priority
    • Merge with slave priority

    For more details, see Replication Merge Strategies.

  4. From this point you can either import the export file information as-is, or you can selectively import as follows:
    • If you want to import without changing the application and environment selections, click Finish.
    • If you want to change the application and environment selections, click Next.
  5. If you selected Next, continue as follows:
    1. Select the applications that you want to import and click Next.
    2. Select the environments that you want to import and click Import.
The imported replication data is populated on this server as defined in the import options.
