We are currently using advanced replication with snapshot replication to
replication from a master to a slave destination. Now we'd like
establish a 2nd replication destination but taking a copy of 1st
replication site and then registering it with the master site. Is this
possible? Can we just shutdown SLAVE #1, bring it up as SLAVE #2 with
new DBID and SID, and then push out replication to both sites? How do we
go about registering the 2nd replication site so that the master will
know that there are now 2 replication sites?
I don't want to start the 2nd replication site from scratch. I need to
use the 1st replication database as a starting point as it has about
400GB of data and replicating that from scratch is going to take a long
