Before You Begin:
Copy the geodatabase(s) to be replicated (one for each replica) to the following locations on the replication client machine (Mobile users: copy to the client administrator machine).
Administrator Machine (field): Place a copy on your client machine (or administrator machine) in the Client Base Path directory. You may wish to create a sub-directory in the Client Base Path directory on your administrator machine.
All Field Machines: Geodatabase Replication will replicate the geodatabase to the Client Base Path directory on the client machine(s). So there's no need to copy the geodatabase to client machines individually. Copy it ONLY to your administrator machine.
