Need to synchronize older restored database to overwrite master database

[ Edited ]

I won't explain how but I have overwritten the master database with an incorrect version of a remote database. I have restored the remote database from a recent backup but how do I get it to synchronize with the master database and replace the master with the restored information, rather than having the restored database overwritten by the newer but incorrect master database?

 

All help and direction greatly appreciated.

Thanks. However there are 4 remote databases in total.

Will it require sorting out the master, as you suggest,  changing the 'master' from a remote back to the master and resending the .rdb files to each of the original remotes to be unpacked and restored?

 

Later...FWIW I decided to manually replace the missing repeating entries after comapring the database with an older version.

 

Thanks again,

Make the remote your master and rebuild your remote database
