Replication topologies are configured and maintained using the dsreplication command-line utility, which supports interactive and non-interactive modes. If you are running the server for the first time, use the dsreplication tool in interactive mode.

The dsreplication tool uses the following format, including some important subcommands listed in About the dsreplication command-line utility.

dsreplication {subcommand} {connection parameters}

The dsreplication tool keeps a history of invocations in the logs/tools/dsreplication.history file and keeps a log of up to 10 dsreplication sessions in the logs/tools directory.
