Enable AI on your source database
Use the steps that follow to enable after-imaging on your source database:
1. Create a new structure file—named, for example, source-db-name_ai.st—and edit it to add after-imaging.
The following sample shows the structure file:
# addai.st
a C:\OpenEdge\WRK\ f 1024
a C:\OpenEdge\WRK\ f 2048
Be sure to give the new structure file a different name (for example, the one shown in the next step) from the one you created in Step 2: Create a structure file.
2. Apply source-db-name_ai.st to the source database.
The syntax follows:
prostrct add source-db-name source-db-name_ai.st
3. Back up the database.
The syntax follows:
probkup source-db-name source-db-backup-name
4. Begin after-imaging.
The syntax follows:
rfutil source-db-name -C aimage begin
