I reconsidered the whole idea of doing the dB clone and decided it shouldn'=
t actually be hard to change the IP Address of the second machine to a high=
er IP Address instead and letting it be a full db server.=0A=0A=0AThanks fo=
r your help.=0A=0ATom Mukunnemkeril=0A=0A=0A=0A----- Original Message -----=

=0A=0A=0AIf you want do avoid that your secondary db server with the lowest=
 IP-address =0Aever becomes sync site it's correct to use -clone for it. Ho=

ntil it is back up if you =0Adon't have a another non-clone db-server.=0A=
