In some cases replication between core servers may take a considerable amount of time. If replication is attempting to move large quantities of data and is not able to complete the task, then AppAssure recommends using a seed drive to manually move the data from one core to another and bring them into sync. The steps detail how to create a seed when replication is already configured.
The process of creating a seed drive after replication is already configured is called “Copy and Consume”. Please note that when performing a copy job, all data in the repository for the selected agent will be copied to the seed drive and will no longer attempt to replicate. Any new snapshots taken will be replicated to the target core.
Once the consume process completes successfully the two cores should have the exact same number of recovery points for the agent that was seeded.
