Replicating only specific databases

By default, Domino® replicates all databases that two servers have in common, but you can specify databases to be replicated.


  1. From the Domino Administrator, click the Configuration tab.
  2. Select the connecting server's Domino Directory in the Use Directory on field.
  3. Click Server, and then click Connections.
  4. Click the connection you want to work with, and then click Edit Connection.
  5. Click the Replication/Routing tab.
  6. In the File/Directories to Replicate field, enter the database names or directory names of specific databases you want to replicate. Separate entries with semicolons (;).
  7. Click Save and Close.


To specify an individual database, enter the file name of the database, including the NSF extension. If the database is in a subdirectory of the data directory, include the path relative to the data directory -- for example, EAST\SALES.NSF.

To specify all files within a directory and any of its subdirectories, enter the directory name relative to the data directory with the directory back slash (\), for example EAST\. You cannot use wild cards (*).

If the replication type is Pull-Pull, only the connecting server receives the specified databases during replication. The other server still receives all databases in common with the calling server.
