 I would love an extra parameter added to the NotesDatabase.CreateReplica method, so that the programmer can select whether to createa full replica, or just the replication stub, and allow the database to replicate fully as scheduled.  So it would become NotesDatabase.CreateReplica(newServer$, newDBFile$, CreateImmediately] where the "CreateImmediately" parameter is Boolean.
You can do this manually, and you select "File - New Replica" but it would be very useful for not tying up users' time and badnwidth on creating a full database replica without being able to do anything else until it is finished.

And the Boolean default should be True to ensure existing code keeps working as designed

As an admin, I do not want an agent arbitrarily creating load on my server during business hours. Admins have workflow procedures for this--and I know this method has a purpose of course.

For small DBs, it's not a big deal, just thinking about a 10GB app on a loaded server and finding out that an application bypassed the normal workflow. Creating a replica stub is fine.
