}You can do this several ways:
}
} Informix Enterprise Replication (formerly Continuous Data Replication)
} Praxis OmniReplicator
} Application code
}
}But NOT with High Availability Data Replication, formerly called just
}replication, and evidently described in the Sams book.

}
}Did you read the Informix web site?  I found 100 hits on the word
}"replication",
}the first of which was a white paper on Enterprise Replication.
}
}Did you search the Informix documentation for information?  A quick search
}revealed 54 occurrences of the word "replication", including a chapter of
the
}Administration Guide entitled "What is Data Replication."
}
}Informix offers a course in Enterprise Replication.  It is not trivial to
}configure, and can require application changes.  I heartily recommend the
}course to people who are interested in replication.

}>what I need to know is :
}>  - could we replicate some tables only
}>  - do we need identical machine, o/s, equal space, etc
}>  - how to do the setup ... we this this quite soon .. very soon
}
}And those actions would answer your questions.

 Replication on INFORMIX ?

The planning, setup and implementation of a successful ER site is not a
trivial matter.  At the last one I was involved in the entire DBA team
attended a customized ER class and still hired an Informix senior consultant
for three months.  The only way I can see you having some kind of stable
ER scenario by Xmas is for you to hire an experienced consultant.

The 7.23 release has many fixes to the ER feature, and there is a host
of new capability (sporadic connections, floating threads, etc) coming
in 7.3 to support ER.  Be sure to use the very latest product you can
for this challenging assignment.

Though you no longer have the time to take the ER class, you may be able
to work out something with your Informix office to get a copy of the
training manual.  (Normally that means paying for the entire class, but
you may be able to arrange to take the class later.)

HDR, on the other hand, is easy and simple to implement given just the
directions in TFM.  For quickly ensuring that all data from one site is
available read-only at a second, identical site that is the way to go.
(I understand that that is not your goal, though.)

If a consultant is not an option, then you can post very detailed yet
concise problem descriptions to the comp.databases.informix list in the
hope that the people there can help you.  (More detail than you had
below.)

Good luck,
