Issues Addressed with this Patch


  • NIM039250 - Replica system versions are not removed when synchronizing a 1 way or 2 way replica using connected synchronization.


  • Description: When synchronizing a replica, system versions are created and removed. When an acknowledgement message is received, system versions that are no longer needed are removed.
