Cloning a primary server
You can use the ifxclone utility to perform one-step server instantiation, allowing a primary server in a high-availability cluster to be cloned with minimum setup or configuration.
- Standalone server
- Remote standalone (RS) secondary server
- High-availability data replication (HDR) secondary server
- Shared-disk (SD) secondary server
- Enterprise Replication server
Data is transferred from the source server to the target server over the network using encrypted Server Multiplexer Group (SMX) Connections.
You can automate the creation of clone instances by calling the ifxclone utility from a script.
