I need help with database name change

Hi

I am new to Act. I use Act 2012, and just had an issue. We are running 5 act remote databases. For some reasons, the main database that we sync with is corrupted. When I ran the database reorg steps, it did not start ata all. I restored deom a backup, but had to cange the name.

 

How do I change the configuration in the remote databases to sync with the newly restore database?

Thanks

Re: I need help with database name change

A database with a different name is a different database and will no longer sync.  Assuming your remote databases had been syncing regularly, You can take one of those, make is a master database and tnen you would need to recut new remotes from the new master.

 

If you have data on those remotes that had not yet synced to the master, you will need to import the data back into the new master.  There is not a way to sync the OLD remotes to the NEW master.
