Alternative to Epicor Replication Server?

Hi Scott,

Can you send me an email to jseeman@... so we can have an offline chat about your setup. I am still struggling to get the publisher to connect to my 905.607 environment. And my 700 test environment has been connected for 3 days now and it is still taking a snapshot of 2nd of 8 tables. Seems crazy to me to take so long?

Thank You for your assistance.

Cheers..
Jill

I've just recently started working with Epicor Replication Server and, even tho Epicor has helped me tremendously to get it to initialize and replicate the few tables that I need for XLConnect, it's not the easiest thing in the world to work with. There are so many moving pieces (Sonic, Replication Server, SQL) to setup in order to get it to run and to keep it running. I've been told that Replication Server can really be useful to create a separate database that can be used to run reports, queries, and dashboards off of in order to take this load off of your main application server. Well if you are on a Progress database I believe that would mean a whole separate installation of Epicor 9 SQL version in order to connect to the SQL database and run the reports/que! ries/dashboards which could just be kinda messy if you think about keeping up with upgrades on both installations (Progress and SQL), etc. Has anyone worked with any other replication software that would be easier to work with than Epicor Replication Server? I've been looking at the Pro2 Replication Suite by Brave Point which will allow you to replicate Progress to SQL, Progress to Progress (which would be great for keeping your test environment(s) as current as your live environment) and Progress to Oracle. Has anyone ever worked with this particular program or would you recommend another replication program that would allow us to EASILY replicate Progress to Progress as well as Progress to SQL?

Hello,
We are running an E9 Progress database and of course in order to use many of the third-party programs such as XLConnect we need to replicate our Progress database (whether full or partial) out to a SQL database. I've just recently started working with Epicor Replication Server and, even tho Epicor has helped me tremendously to get it to initialize and replicate the few tables that I need for XLConnect, it's not the easiest thing in the world to work with. There are so many moving pieces (Sonic, Replication Server, SQL) to setup in order to get it to run and to keep it running.

Well if you are on a Progress database I believe that would mean a whole separate installation of Epicor 9 SQL version in order to connect to the SQL database and run the reports/queries/dashboards which could just be kinda messy if you think about keeping up with upgrades on both installations (Progress and SQL), etc. Has anyone worked with any other replication software that would be easier to work with than Epicor Replication Server?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions\information you can provide on this!
Hi,

I was wondering if you have had any further luck with Epicor Replicator? I am having all sorts of issues trying to get it setup against our Progress DB. We are finding that if we can get the publisher to connect, it takes HOURS and HOURS to populate the SQL tables.

I also find I can get it to connect to our Epicor 905.700 test db but our live version on 905.607 will not connect.

Would you be able to share with us your setup for Sonic and Replicator? I am convinced we are doing something wrong but just can't pin point it. We run two servers, the Epicor application server and then a separate Replication server that houses SQL. We have installed Sonic on our Epicor application server.

Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Hello Jill,

We have the exact same setup and are replicating somewhat successfully. What are you trying to replicate?

Hi,

I was wondering if you have had any further luck with Epicor Replicator? I am having all sorts of issues trying to get it setup against our Progress DB. We are finding that if we can get the publisher to connect, it takes HOURS and HOURS to populate the SQL tables.

I also find I can get it to connect to our Epicor 905.700 test db but our live version on 905.607 will not connect.

Would you be able to share with us your setup for Sonic and Replicator? I am convinced we are doing something wrong but just can't pin point it. We run two servers, the Epicor application server and then a separate Replication server that houses SQL. We have installed Sonic on our Epicor application server.

Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.
