1) here's my set up. i've got a BE replica on each local computer. it connects to a network drive BE replica and synchronises every day. i want to compact and repair all the BE replicas. must i go to each computer and compact and repair, open the network drive BE replica and C&R it as well or can i C&R one local replica and then when it synchronises it will C&R all the other replicas?
none of the above mentioned BE replicas are the design master.
2) what if i C&R my design master and then synchronise to one replica, then get that replica to synchronise to all the other replicas, will the C&R cascade down?
3) the network connection is SUPER SLOW and so it's very hard to C&R the network replica. if i copy it to my local machine then C&R it then put it back, it will take it as a new replicaID and then there will be conflicts, is that correct?
