The Replicator service is a new feature included in OS/2 LAN Manager versions 2.0 and later. The documentation for the Replicator service is fairly complete, and documents the two points discussed below; however, these two points can be somewhat confusing.

In the example listed below, assume the export server is named EXPORT1, and the import server is named IMPORT1. When starting the Replicator, you should do the following:

  1. Make sure the IMPORT1 account on EXPORT1 (the export server) has "RA" authority on the entire C:\LANMAN\REPL\EXPORT tree.

    The easiest way to do this is with the NET ADMIN command. First, authorize IMPORT1 (the import server) to just C:\LANMAN\REPL\EXPORT, then after clicking Permit you will be returned to a menu where you just click Permit tree.
  2. On IMPORT1, the import server, do the following

          md c:\lanman\repl\import\subdir1
          md c:\lanman\repl\import\subdir2

    so that the subdirectories IMPORT1 is supposed to import (in this example, subdir1, and subdir2) will already exist. The Replicator will not create these subdirectories for you, so you must do this yourself. The reason the Replicator does not create these subdirectories for you is because this is one way to control which, of the potentially many subdirectories an export server might export, are actually imported to by a given import server.
