Using Real Time replication


New member
What is the setup process for a job to continue to run and perform real time updates after its initial run?
Does the RTA need to be used?
Does the job need to run as a service?
Do you need to setup a re-occuring schedule?
Hi SteveH,
Welcome to the community
For a job to run real-time, a few requirements should be set:
1) The source should be local.
2) Run the job as a service
3) Real-time will operate when the job is not "running". Reruns are highly recommended as real-time can miss some files (it is a Windows limitation). The chances of missing files can be less than 1%.

I think this answers the underlying question. The real-time copy relies on the journaling of the local computer to know when something has changed.
