How to avoid DB Replication problem in lab
I need your help any any ideas if you have:
To avoid DB replication problem I follow the below procedure:
1. CUCM > servers: change to IP addresses.
2. CUCM > callmanager: put the exact names I see in "show myself" command for both sub and pub
3. CUCM OS admin > Add ntp server as specified in question.
4. Activate the services on pub and sub and get on with the sections.
What I noticed is sometimes in the middle of the lab, the sub will be out of sync. Using unified reporting is not good. Even though it shows good status with 2 and count as 412. If I change location bandwidth I do not see it get synced on sub by using show perf query class "Cisco Locations". Even the trace log will not work in troubleshooting section. I end up stopping replication services on sub and then pub and finally doing a forceddbsub on pub and restarting the subscriber. This is not good as I loose lot of time in lab. Few times I end with db reset for the cluster-wide.
Do anyone know of a better method to avoid this problem totally in real lab?
