hi, we are using shadow based synchornisation (with mobilink), and for some reasons we need to add a new remote database, but this new db is almost empty so we wanto to make complete synchronisation from existed consolidate to this remote (have same image of those tables from cons to remote). Question: 1- would it be enough to change the 'last_modified' field for each shadow table of relevant tables on cons. to the current timestamp? 2- Is there any shorter mean, since the solution 1 will cause also transferring the whole image to all other remotes (huge data transaction). Thanks in advance.

When you create a new remote database, the first time that remote database synchronizes, it should sent up a last-download timestamp of '1900-01-01 00:00:00.000'. That value should be less than all the last_download timestamps in your shadow tables, so all the initial data in the consolidated database should be download to the new remote.

Can you describe how you "add a new remote database" ?

Thanks, Reg

thanks for the reply, actually it is done using a ready script. I will check the script and write back the mechanism.
