Please note that in the v4.2 release we have enhanced not only Replication performance but the interface as well. Below are the instructions for using the new interface to create a Replication Profile (formerly Replication Spec)

Configuring Replication Profiles
  1. In the left-hand navigation section, click Create Profile.  
  2. Enter the name of the replication profile and an optional description.
  3. For Target Engine, enter the hostname or IP address for the target Delphix Engine.
  4. Enter the username and password of a user who has Delphix Admin-level credentials on the target Delphix Engine. If the username and password change on the target Delphix Engine, you must update these settings on the source Delphix Engine.
  5. By default, automatic replication is disabled, meaning that you must trigger replication updates manually. To enable automatic replication, click the Enabled checkbox.
  6. In the  Automatic Replication field, enter the Frequency and Starting Time for replication updates to the target Delphix Engine. Once you have entered and saved your replication settings, you will also see an option to trigger replication immediately with the Replicate Now button.
    1. Note : Automatic replication uses Quartz for scheduling. Starting with Delphix version 4.2, the Quartz-formatted string is editable via the Advanced option. Please refer to the screenshot below:

  7. Under Traffic Options, select whether you want to Encrypt traffic, Compress traffic, or Limit bandwidth during replication updates.
    1. Note: the Compress option is enabled by default.
  8. In the right-hand column, under Objects Being Replicated, click the boxes next to the objects you want to replicate. 
  9. Click Create Profile to submit the new profile. This saves the replication profile details. If you leave the Create page prior to submitting the profile, the draft replication profile will be discarded.
