 I have two Mac OSX 10.6.x Servers, one is OD master, and one is replica, we would like to shut down replica for a couple of days, should I do something on OD Master Server?

If we connect the replica server on the network, should we do something on OD replica or OD master? Thanks.

    Not that I know of. An OD Master is (almost) always present, regardless of there is a replica or not. I'm sure there are background processes between Master and Replica, but as far as I know the connection is initiated from the Replica machine. One thing that could cause problems is that there are network-services that run on the Replica only but that shouldn't involve the OD connection, it's more an inconvenience for network users.

    Possibly when you reconnect it, there might be some speed issues, but these will be temporary until the replica is up to speed with things
