You can set up replication rules for the resource types or resource targets, specific data classes, and event types that you want to replicate within the hierarchy. Each rule replicates the specified data in one direction only, up to the parent Notification Server or down to the child Notification Servers.
Hierarchy replication is not supported from a 7.1 server to a 7.0 server or from a 7.0 server to 7.1 server.
You may include resource targets in a resource replication rule. Resource scoping applies to the contents (resources) of the targets that are replicated. Therefore, the resources that are replicated depends on the owner of the resource target. The Notification Server administrator can choose to replicate resource targets in their current state (owned by somebody else, with the corresponding scope). Alternatively, they can take ownership of the targets, save them with the administrator's scope (which usually contains more resources) and replicate them in that state. All the current members of a resource target are replicated. The actual resource target item is replicated in the background as a dependent item. For example, when a replication rule is created at the parent which applies to a resource target. The resource target is replicated as a dependent item when the replication rule itself replicates down the hierarchy. However, when a child Notification Server defines a new hierarchy rule and applies it to a resource target, the target does not send, just the resources within and the selected data types.
The replication rules that are provided with Notification Server and the installed solutions cannot be deleted, and you should not normally need to modify them. However, you can enable and disable rules when necessary, and you can edit the rule name and description.
To configure hierarchy replication rules
In the Symantec Management Console, on the Settings menu, click Notification Server Management > Hierarchy.
On the Hierarchy Management page, click the Replication tab.
Do any of the following:
To create a new hierarchy replication rule
To modify an existing hierarchy replication rule
Select the appropriate rule, and then click Edit.
To enable a hierarchy replication rule
Check Enabled beside the replication rule name.
If you want to disable the replication rule, uncheck Enabled.
To delete a hierarchy replication rule
Select the appropriate rule, and then click Delete.
If you want to create or modify a rule, in the Replication Rule window, specify the appropriate settings.
