Create a button in the admin client that will initiate a replication of names.nsf with all the servers in a domain that a server has connection documents to, when you have a specific server selected.
Many times, I make a change in the NAB that needs to be replicated to several servers.  I end up going to our hub server or administration server and manually issuing replication commands to replicate the NAB to several relevant servers so that the changes get there immediately - ahead of the replication connection schedules.

Add a textfile named "replicate_all" to the data folder, add as many "replicate <server> names.nsf" lines as needed and then in the console "< replicate_all". Ok, it's just a workaround...

Or use replicate serverGroup names.nsf, where serverGroup is group of type Servers only with all servers inside.

So you could use replicate LocalDomainServers names.nsf?

That's a excellent tip if it works.

This is a side-effect of the ideamjam concept, is that little known tips/tricks get wider exposure to those who might otherwise not learn about them.

Sorry Martin,

NONE of the following work:

rep LocalDomainServers names.nsf
rep LocalDomainServers@Domainname names.nsf
rep LocalDomainServers/Domainname names.nsf

Any other ideas?

The rep localdomainservers names.nsf should work, I use it all the time. Just make sure that the servers you want to push the changes to are in the group.
