Re create server address book

Hi Guys

See Post

Any way after some fiidling it only seem to be the address book on one of the servers

Is there anyway to remove this without bringing down the server

I do not think there is

you have to take server off line and do a os-level copying
If you have a replica copy.. then replace the existing file with the new one !

Smae for when I try to delete the db
I actually had a delicate swapout once. Added a server that shared the same directory on a SAN, with an alternate primary directory, but shared deeper data directories with the older server, and used the same server ID.  Server starts up, complains that all files are open, but it does work.  Bring down old server server, change IPs, and magically, the new server is responding as the old.
