Replication can be used create an up-to-date copy of your production server on another machine.
This copy is not meant to be actively processing documents, but to be held in reserve as a recovery option during emergencies or planned maintenance. The replication process involves two distinct stages:
- Replicating the PostgreSQL database to a second PostgreSQL database.
- Replicating the remote server and Clarify Shared Workspaces on the file system. Note: the server cluster must be shut down in order for server/workspace replication to be successful. Refer to How to Stop, Suspend, and Resume the Server Cluster in the Clarify Server Installation Guide.
For maximum redundancy, you should replicate to a different machine rather than just a different folder or drive volume on the same machine.
