Part of setting up ASE Replicator is configuring each remote server on which a replicate database resides. If a remote server is not configured as described in Chapter 2, “Setting Up and Starting ASE Replicator,” you cannot start replication to that server.
If you add a new remote server or replicate database to an existing replication system, you must follow the procedures in Chapter 2, “Setting Up and Starting ASE Replicator,” to configure that remote server or replicate database.
Some typical symptoms of remote server configuration problems are:
You cannot create ASE Replicator replicate objects, such as a replicate database connection, subscription, or replicate article.
Using the sp_addreplicateconn procedure to create a replicate database connection returns an error.
Using the sp_addreplicateart procedure to create a replicate article returns an error.
Using a replicate object “help” procedure, such as sp_helpreplicateconn always returns an error.
To correct remote server configuration problems
See “Configuring the replicate servers and databases” and verify that all the configuration tasks described in that section are completed.
