This page deals with what needs to be done to recreate a WEAR location that has already been created and in use for a period of time. This page is for normal operations where the remote database has exported its information back to head office before the recreation is done. If the remote database information is not able to be exported back to head office, that information will be lost.
This page is not a step by step guide on creating replication locations. It is specifically to cover the additional parts for recreating a location.
You must first update the System Five License codes on the main dataset, and re-allocate the terminals if nessesary.
Once this is done, you will need to re-create all remote datasets. Otherwise the existing remote(s) will not be aware of the new location(s) and you will have integrity and other issues develop over time.
