7.14 Remove Apply Process

The “remove” Apply Process command is used to remove the Process configuration files and the checkpoint details, together with historical information. If the Target Database is reachable the “remove”command will cleanup all the checkpoint information on the Target Database.

The command can only be executed if the specified Apply Process is not running. 

It is strongly recommended that you backup configuration files and last successfully processed LSN before running this command (see chapter 9.4 Backup Repstance Files).

This command cannot be applied to a group of Apply Processes at the same time, it must be used individually for each of the configured Apply Processes.
