IssueHow to recreate a replica package set for push in RSA ACE/Server
ResolutionTo recreate a replica package and push it out, follow these steps:

On Windows:

For the ACE/Server to automatically push the database to the replica, start by checking Database Administration --> System --> Edit System Parameters; the 'Allow DB-Push' checkbox is selected.

1. Using Explorer, or other method delete the folder (directory) ace\data\replica_package\  {replica_package}

2. Go to Control Panel --> RSA ACE/Server and Stop the ACE/Server

3. Go to Start --> Programs --> RSA ACE Server --> Replication Management
 a. Click on the (last) replica {highlighting it}
 b. Click the button Generate Replica Package
 c. Click Exit

4. Go to Control Panel --> RSA ACE/Server and Start the ACE/Server. The database will be pushed to the Replica after the replication interval has passed.

On UNIX:

1. In RSA ACE/Server Administration on the Primary server, select the System menu, and make sure the 'Allow DB-Push' checkbox is checked

2. Stop the Primary ACE/Server

3. First, remove the current replica_package directory in your system path .../ace/data/replica_package/ on the Primary (if any exist from previous packages). Generate a Replica Package for any/all Replicas being configured at this time:

   cd .../ace/prog
   ./sdrepmgmt add
        The fully qualified name of the Replica
        securidprop_0x {x= number of the current replica package I.E. 2 for second replica}
        550x  {x= 5505 plus the number of the current replica package I.E. 5507 for second replica}
        Accept all default from here out.
   ./sdsetup -package

Enter the same name of the Replica as it appears in the Replica Table - ./sdrepmgmt list will show you exactly how you have it set up - regardless of whether the name is Fully Qualified or shortened.

4. Restart the Primary

5. tar -crvf the replica_package directory located on the Primary you just created

6. FTP this file, (in binary mode), to the Replica

7. With the replica_package on this host, install the Replica ACE/Server using the ./sdsetup -replica command. You will be prompted to the location of the replica_package: IE. If your package is residing in your /tmp file, you must point to the absolute path and name of the Replica package - /tmp/replica_package
