copy config

Use the copy config command to copy a configuration file and save the copy under a different file name. Copying the configuration allows you to:

  • Save a replica for backup purposes
  • Use the copy as the basis for composing a new configuration using the edit config command
  • Change an active configuration. You can make your changes to the copy with the edit config command while replication under the current configuration continues, and then activate the new configuration when you are ready.

This command copies the configuration to the same source system as the original configuration. To copy a configuration file to a different system, you can transfer the file via tape, CD, or FTP.

To see a list of configurations on a system, use the list config command. To view the contents of a configuration, use the view config command.

Usage

Supported sources: Oracle and SQL Server
Supported targets: All
Authorization level: Operator (2)
Issues on: source system
Related commands: activate config, create config, edit config, list config, remove config, rename config, show config, verify config view config

Syntax

Basic command Remote options
copy config filename to newname

[ on host |

on host:portnumber |

on login/password@host |

on login/password@host:portnumber ]

Syntax Description

Component Description
filename to newname
  • filename is the name of the configuration that you want to copy. Configuration names are case-sensitive.
  • to is a required part of the syntax.
  • newname is the name you are giving to the copy. It must be unique among configurations on the system.

Example:

sp_ctrl(sysA)> copy config sales to sales2

Remote options

These options enable you to issue the command on a remote machine and to script commands that include a login name, password, port number, or combination of those items.

Option Description
on host

Execute the command on a remote system (one other than the one where the current sp_ctrl session is running). You are prompted for login credentials for the remote system. If used, must be the last component of the command syntax.

Example: sp_ctrl(sysB)>status on SysA

on host:portnumber

Execute the command on a remote system when a remote login and port number must be provided. If used, must be the last component of the command syntax.

Example: sp_ctrl(sysB)>status on SysA:8304

Example: sp_ctrl(sysB)>status on john/spot5489@SysA:8304

copy status

Use the copy status command to view the status of the last copy or append job run. The copy status command can be used to view detailed status on a copy or append job or a portion of a copy or append job, or to view status on all copy and append jobs for which SharePlex has history.

For details and examples about using the copy status command, see the job status command.

Usage

Supported sources: Oracle
Supported targets: Oracle
Authorization level: Viewer
Issued for: source or target
Related commands: append status

Syntax

[full]

[detail]

[status]

[ on host |

Syntax description

Component Description
job status Without options, the command shows the status of all jobs for which SharePlex has history.
job_id

Displays status history for the job with the specified SharePlex-assigned job ID.

Example:

sp_ctrl(sysA)> job status 2828.2

job_id.table_id

Displays status history for the job with the specified SharePlex-assigned job ID and table.

Example:

sp_ctrl(sysA)> job status 2828.HR.SRC_TEST3

all

Displays a summary line for every job with history in the database.

Example:

sp_ctrl(sysA)> job status all

full

Displays the status of every object in the job. By default, the job status command displays the status of those objects not completed, or completed with an exceptional status.

Example:

sp_ctrl(sysA)> job status2828 full

detail

Displays detail information for every object reported upon. By default, the job status command displays a summary line for every object reported upon. Note that the detail information is the same as is displayed for the job_id.table_id option.

Example:

sp_ctrl(sysA)> job status detail

[status]

Displays status history for previous jobs with the specified status.

sp_ctrl(SysA)> job status “Error”

Remote options

These options enable you to issue the command on a remote machine and to script commands that include a login name, password, port number, or combination of those items.

Option Description
on host

Execute the command on a remote system (one other than the one where the current sp_ctrl session is running). You are prompted for login credentials for the remote system. If used, must be the last component of the command syntax.

Example: sp_ctrl(sysB)>status on SysA

on host:portnumber

Execute the command on a remote system when a remote login and port number must be provided. If used, must be the last component of the command syntax.

Example: sp_ctrl(sysB)>status on SysA:8304

on login/password@host

Execute the command on a remote system when a remote login, password, and host name must be provided. If used, must be the last component of the command syntax.

Example: sp_ctrl(sysB)>status on john/spot5489@SysA

Example: sp_ctrl(sysB)>status on john/spot5489@SysA:8304

create config

Use the create config command to create a new configuration file. This command runs the SharePlex default text editor and opens a new file. To create a configuration, follow the instructions in Chapter 5 of the SharePlex Administrator’s Guide.

If you attempt to give a new configuration the same name as an existing configuration, SharePlex returns this error message “The parameter for create config must be a new filename.”

As an alternative to creating a configuration, you can use the copy config command to duplicate an existing configuration and then use the edit config command to edit the copy.

Usage

Supported targets: All
Authorization level: Operator (2)
Issues on: source system
Related commands: activate config, copy config, edit config, list config, remove config, show config, verify config, view config

create encryption key

Use the create encryption key command to create an encryption key for SharePlex to use to encrypt data across the network. SharePlex uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption.

The create encryption key command returns a randomly generated, 256-bit AES key. By default, SharePlex uses 128 bits of that length to encrypt the data.

To increase the key length that SharePlex uses, set the SP_XPT_AES_KEY_LENGTH parameter to 192 or 256 bits. When you increase the length, the key is harder to hack but requires more CPU power.

sp_ctrl> set param sp_xpt_aes_key_length {192 | 256}

Example: set param sp_xpt_aes_key_length 256

The following is an example key: E5F5D4CBA329D2C86B5D7ABA096C18600595490129F55A1422AAB0248B28D0E4.
