I administer DB2- and MySQL-Databases. I use replication in MySQL and HADR in DB2. I am looking for a special replication or an other high availability concept in any database, so that I needn't move data, after I start the replication. Normally, I must stop both database-server, copy data and then start the replication. Do you know another concept, that the slave- db-server (without data) peek up all data from the master after replication is started?
I am very interested, if such concept exist.
