New and Revised Features
What's New in 11.7 : OpenEdge Replication

OpenEdge Replication

OpenEdge Release 11.7 includes the following new features for OpenEdge Replication:
*Recovery Transition
Recovery Transition is enhanced through the implementation of Replication Sets. A Replication Set is a two-target Replication configuration where the two targets are aware of each other, and are configured to continue replication in the event of a server failure. The target replicas can transition together, with one becoming the source replica and the other becoming the target of the new source. Replication Sets minimize the risk of a single point of failure, and can also avoid the time consuming process to rebase.
*Enhancements to VSTs and Replication Monitor
The replication VSTs and Replication Monitor are expanded to support Replication Sets, and the underlying communication support structure.
Updated tables include:
A new VST table for replication is, _Repl-InterAgentActivity
*DSRUTIL Status — The DSRUTIL status command is updated to include a verbose option that returns a description of the status in addition to the return code.
*Parameter values are enforced
Prior to 11.7, a warning was issued if the startup parameters for a target database were less than the source. Starting in 11.7, an error is returned, and the target database agent does not start. This case is enforced for the following parameters:
*Lock Table Entries (-L)
*Number of Users (-n)
*Maximum JTA Transactions (-Maxxids)
*The sum of Number of Users (-n) and Maximum Servers (-Mn)
