Hopefully a simple question. One of my customer sites has OE Replication but the .properties files aren't ideally set up. As a result they have a torrid time when it comes to rebooting servers. They have to reboot in a certain order and mutter various incantations to get things to resynch.
I want to change the properties to remove much of this effort. So is it just a case of changing the .properties files and restarting the databases?
If this is 11.6+, then you don't have to restart databases to re-read .repl.properties files. Restarting server/agent will do that. If this is < 11.6 then you would need to at least bounce a target database and restart replication server (source DB does/would not need restart) to re-read your new repl.properties
Thanks everyone. I'll go for the DB restart as one of the issues we have with this customer is dsrutil terminate server hanging, so the DB goes down anyway. I'm pretty certain it's a config issue as we don't have this issue elsewhere. I might try it on one of the DBs first though to avoid downtime.
