Perform a full or differential replication

After you reset a replication policy, you must perform either a full or differential replication. You can do this only from the CLI.

Before you begin

Reset a replication policy.

Procedure

  1. Open a secure shell (SSH) connection to any node in the cluster and log in through the root or compliance administrator account.
  2. Specify the type of replication you want to perform by running the isi sync policies modify command.
    • To perform a full replication, disable the --target-compare-initial-sync option.

      For example, the following command disables differential synchronization for newPolicy:

      isi sync policies modify newPolicy \
      --target-compare-initial-sync false
    • To perform a differential replication, enable the --target-compare-initial-sync option.

      For example, the following command enables differential synchronization for newPolicy:

      isi sync policies modify newPolicy \
      --target-compare-initial-sync true
  3. Run the policy by running the isi sync jobs start command.
    For example, the following command runs newPolicy:
    isi sync jobs start newPolicy
