Using replication history

The Replication History dialog box shows a list of replication events called entries. Each entry shows when and with which server an application last replicated, and whether data was sent or received. Some entries have an asterisk (*), which indicates to IBM® Support that the replica is fully up-to-date with other servers.

About this task

If the Replication History dialog box is not open, select or open the application you want history for, make sure View > Advanced Menus is selected, and click File > Replication > History.

Tip: To see a list of all replicas of an application, right-click (Macintosh users, CTRL+click) the application's bookmark, click Open Replica, and expand the list. IBM® Notes® shows all replicas of the bookmarked application with a check mark beside the currently selected replica. Select a replica in the list to open it.

You may want to clear a replica's replication history if you think the replica doesn't contain all the documents it should or if the application's replication history is out of sync with other replicas.

You must have manager access to an application to clear its replication history. You can clear individual entries within an application's replication history or clear the entire replication history.

Note: If you have customized a replica to replicate documents based on age using a cutoff date, don't clear the replication history. The history works with the cutoff date to tell Notes® which documents it can skip during replication, saving time. For more information, see To remove or replicate incoming documents based on age.
