replicationEZ's Discover Replicas feature allows you to take a database on any server and scan it to find any replicas that exist across all your Domino servers. The Discover Replicas panel uses a grid-type inferface which offers the standard grouping, filtering, customization and exportation options available in all Ytria tools' grids.
How to perform 'Discover Replicas' scans
You can launch a 'Discover Replicas' scan from the main grid by selecting a database choosing Tools>Discover Replicas (or right-click and choose 'Discover Replicas' from the contextual menu).
It is possible to customize the process and outcome. (This setup can be bypassed by holding the Ctrl-key).
You can restrict the scope of search for replicas only to first degree connections - should you select this option, only replicas that have directly replicated with the selected replica(s) will be scanned. As opposed to this, a full scan will not only discover all replicas with which the currently selected replica(s) have been replicating, but also all replicas that these first-degree connections replicated with ....and so on. At the end of the process, charts can be built to better analyze the replication history.
Chart options can also be selected prior to generation. For more on these options click here link
You can also launch a Discover Replicas scan from the Replication History Panel by selecting a database and clicking the Discover Replicas button (or right-click and choose 'Discover Replicas' from the contextual menu).
Cancel any ongoing 'Discover Replicas' threads with the 'Stop All' button
Note: In cases where Discover Replicas scans uncover servers and databases which are accessible, they'll be added to the main grid and added to the Databases panel tree (in a partially loaded state).
