Child replica

Jump to: navigation, search

A child replica is a copy of a dataset (the parent replica) existing in a separate location. A child replica inherits most of its attributes, including relationship class, domains, datasets, topologies and behavior, from its relative parent replica.

In geodatabase editing, data that has been copied to a destination geodatabase during the replication process.[1]


The term "child replica" is used to refer to the output location and entity in which a replica is created from a relative replica or "parent" within a replication environment.
