Goal

This note assists in describing the process of synchronizing information within Configurator tables after cloning an instance. Directly after cloning there are several data issues that need to be addressed, most importantly with the CZ_Servers table that manages connections to remote instances and publication records that link to remote instances. These post clone steps will not apply if publications are handled locally, and there is not a multiple instance setup.

Two types of instances that can be cloned are differentiated as follows:

Publication Source – The Publication Source instance, often referred to as simply Source, refers to the environment where publications are developed and published from. Usually this refers to the Configurator Developer environment that will push publication records to the target. A publication source can have multiple targets.

Publication Target – The Publication Target, often referred to as simply Target, refers to the environment that the publications will be published to. In other words, this could represent an Order Management, iStore, Quoting, or several other types of instances. This target instance references the source for it's publication information, and each target can only have a single publication source. If a target has several sources, there will likely be data corruption issues during the publication process.
