Moving From Failure to Recovery with OpenEdge Replication : OpenEdge Replication from normal activity through failure and recovery : Step 4: Transitioning the target database to a source database
 

Step 4: Transitioning the target database to a source database

The next step in the failover process is to transition the target database to a source database, as shown in the following figure.
Figure 16. Transitioning the target to a source database
To transition the database successfully:
1. Properly configure the transition properties. See Setting transition properties for details.
2. Use the following command to perform transition:
dsrutil target-db-name -C transition
You can also configure transition to occur automatically, so that neither you nor another DBA needs to explicitly execute the command to initiate it.
If you do configure automatic transition, however, be aware that source after-image extents cannot be applied before the target database is transitioned. You will need to redo all work that was not applied.
