Empty vendor database creation

Before you import a replica-creation packet, you must create an empty vendor database to contain the replica data.

Note: To prevent data corruption, the code page (or character set) of your vendor databases should match the data code page value of your database set.
Attention: Do not create a HCL Compass database before receiving a database replica. Importing a replica packet into an empty vendor database creates a HCL Compass database. If you have created a HCL Compass database with the Maintenance Tool or HCL Compass Designer, the replica import fails.
