Before running the Duplicate command, we recommend that you create a backup of the non-replicated databases. You must have also added the locations for any satellites you intend to add. For more information, see New Location.

No modeling should occur on the Host or Satellite computers during the Duplication process. Any work performed during this process, such as the creation of new objects or filters, could be lost if they are not included in the backup of the databases.

See Duplicate Model for Workshare across Untrusted Networks for special instructions when this environment is to be configured when using Oracle.

  1. In the tree view, select a Model database.

  2. Click Tools > Duplicate Model for Workshare. You can also right-click on the model in the tree and select Duplicate Model for Workshare.

    If you have not yet created a backup of the non-replicated model, we recommend that you step out of the duplication process and create a backup at this time. In the event that you encounter problems during the Workshare process, you can restore the backup set of databases on the server and continue working without any loss of data.

  3. On the Duplicate Model for Workshare dialog box, select one or more Satellite locations in the Available locations list and click Add.

    • For each location selected, one row for each database type is added to the grid.

    • You can remove a location from the Locations and servers where model will be duplicated grid with the Remove button.

    • You can add one or more satellites to an existing Global Workshare Configuration without consolidating other satellites.

    • For Oracle databases, you must type the GoldenGate administrator user name and password.

  4. Click OK to start the duplication process.

    • A variety of replication scripts and a batch files are generated during execution of the Duplicate Model for Workshare command. These files are generated on the Smart 3D administrative computer on which the command is executed and delivered to sub-folders created in the local temp folder of the user executing the replication process.

    • You can click Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run dialog box to locate the local temp folder.

    • For SQL Server, the files are created in the ReplicationModelName subfolder of the local temp folder in the initial duplication of one or more satellites. When a single satellite is added to an existing Global Workshare Configuration, the files are created in the AddSatellite<LocationName>ModelName subfolder and the batch file names are ToRunPrebackup.bat and ToRunPostRestore_<n>.bat, where <n> is a sequential number with 1 being for the host, 2 being for the first satellite, 3 for the second satellite, and so forth.

    • For disaster recovery purposes, it is recommended that you backup these scripts and batch files into a separate folder.

  5. When the duplication process completes, click OK.
