Adding a replication partner
If you want to replicate data with another site, you may have already set it up during the initial installation. If you did not set up replication during the initial installation, you can do so later by adding a replication partner.
You can add a replication partner that was previously deleted as a partner. If you add a deleted partner, the management server to which you want to connect must have previously been a partner on the same site farm.
