4. Generate a Replica-Package on the Primary server, and copy it to the $REP_ACE directory on the Replica
What is a Replica Packageand how togenerate one in RSA ACE/Server running on UNIX platforms?

5. From the top level installation directory path to cdrom and run 'sdsetup -replica'

6. To activate authentication on the Replica, after installation is complete, from the $USR_ACE directory, run './sdconfig -config', or 'sdsetup -config'. Answer "Yes" to 'Do you want to configure an acting Master server?' and add the Replica's name as the Master server.
Enable or disable Authentication on Primary and Replica servers.

7. To activate authentication on the replica, start ACE/Server administration (sdadmin) on the Primary, and select Agent Host from the Main Menu, select 'Add Agent Host', select "Add Agent Host' add the replica as an agent host. Select Assign Acting Servers, assign the Replica server as a Master server, you may also assign a Slave server here. Directory activate a user, or activate a group on the Agent Host for the Replica.

8. Start the Primary and the Replica, if Allow DB-Push is enabled then the primary will resend a copy of the database to the Replica, shutdown the Replica, and Restart it using the new copy of the database
What is a DB-Push and how is it initiated?

9. Test Authenticate by running sdshell
