Managing Replicate Servers

Before you can create a Compose for Data Warehouses project, you need to define a Replicate task that replicates the relevant source tables from the source database to the Landing Zone. If you want your ingested data from multiple sources, then you need to define a separate task for each source. Tasks can either reside on the same Replicate Server or on different Replicate Servers. A single Replicate task can serve several projects.

You can also monitor the Replicate task(s) from within the Compose for Data Warehouses monitor. This requires you to provide the information that will allow Compose for Data Warehouses to establish a connection with the Replicate Server on which the tasks are running. After providing this information, you will then be able to associate a source Landing Zone with a specific Replicate Server and task.
