Learn about the subscription materialization issues that you must consider when implementing a replication system with heterogeneous or non-ASE data servers, as well as how to materialize subscriptions to primary tables in a non-ASE database.

Materialization is creating and activating subscriptions and copying data from a primary database to a replicate database, thereby initializing the replicate database.

Before you can replicate data from a primary database, you must set up and populate each replicate database so that the replicate objects (such as tables) are in a state consistent with those in the primary database.
