Replication Check (Databases)

Finds replica copies of databases with significantly different numbers of documents. A replica copy of a database with more documents than another may indicate databases that are not replicating correctly. Replication Check can check all databases on a number of servers for this condition. After problem databases are identified, they can be examined further by Power Tools to locate specific documents that exist in one replica, but not in another to help you determine what the actual replication problem is.

Trial Version Limitations

There is no time limit for the Power Tools trial version. The trial version is fully functional, but most of the utilities will not process all possible names or databases. For example, some utilities will only process databases where the file name starts with the letters 'A' through 'M' and databases that start with the letters 'N' through 'Z' will be skipped. Some utilities will only process user names that start with the letters 'A' through 'M' and user names that start with the letters 'N' through 'Z' will be skipped. In any case, you will be notified when you start a utility what, if any, the trial version limitation is.
