The Tools > Duplicate Model for Workshare command collects the name of the model to be replicated, the Satellite locations involved in the workshare, and the Satellite server names for the various databases. After the information is collected, the command generates the replication scripts. You can add one or more satellite locations to an existing global workshare without having to first consolidate all the satellite locations.
The Duplicate Model for Workshare command is only enabled when a Model database is selected in the tree view at the Host location. Satellite locations cannot duplicate models. Duplicate Model for Workshare cannot be run on satellite locations.
No modeling should occur on the Host or Satellite machines 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.
