Before you upgrade the management server, it is a best practice to turn off replication for all sites that are configured as replication partners. If a replication partner launches replication during the upgrade, it may have unpredictable results. Turn off replication at each site that replicates. You must log on to and turn off replication at a minimum of two sites.
To turn off replication before an upgrade
In the console, click Admin > Servers.
Under Servers, expand Replication Partners and select a site.
Right-click the site, and then click Delete.
Log off the console, and then repeat this procedure at all sites that replicate data.
To turn on replication after an upgrade
On the console, click Admin > Servers.
Under Servers, click Local Site, and under Tasks, click Add Existing Replication Partner.
In the Welcome to the Specify Existing Replication Partner Wizard panel, click Next.
In the Remote Site Information panel, enter the identifying information about the replication partner, enter the authentication information, and then click Next.
In the Schedule Replication panel, set the schedule for when replication occurs automatically, and then click Next.
In the Replication of Log Files and Client Packages panel, check the items to replicate, and then click Next.
Package replication uses large amounts of traffic and hard disk space.
In the Completing the Add Replication Partner Wizard panel, click Finish.
Repeat this procedure for all computers that replicate data with this computer.
