We have two Domino servers in a cluster.  Most databases are replicated between both servers.  How can I get a list of databases on one server that are NOT being replicated to the other?

The only way is to check all Connection documents and analyze which folders/databases are listed.
But even that would not guarantee that a db is replicating, since the replication can be disabled in the db properties (Temporarily disable replication for this replica).

You can find out which databases have replica on other server by opening Catalog.nsf (you need to replicate it between servers first in order to have databases of both servers listed). Then it's easy, simply open view Databases > By replica ID.

As mbonaci suggests Use catalog.nsf to work out which databases reside on which servers via their replica ID.

To enahnce this and see where replication issues are occouring you can create a database and agent that opens each database on the relevant server and gets the document count.
This should help to show you where there is a replication issue.

Agents to count documents?
I really wouldn't suggest that as the mean of establishing which dbs replicate.

Rather open server's Log db and go to "Replication events" view.

Rather than use the catalog I would use the Cluster Database Directory (cldbdir.nsf) which you will find on each server in the cluster. That gives a number of views of the replicas on each server in the cluster and you can quickly determine if cluster replicationis enabled for each database.

An agent to count docs isn't an accurate measurement but is a starting overview to find obvious issues that can then be looked at in more detail in log views.

Cluster directory is also good source but only works for servers within the same cluster, where catalog.nsf can encompass every server in a domain. For the OP this is the case so could be a better starting source.
