3.2 Post-Installation Host Environment

On Linux hosts you should now have a publication server daemon and a subscription server daemon running on your computer assuming you chose to install the publication server and subscription server components. On Windows systems, the publication server and subscription server run as services named Publication Service and Subscription Service.

An xDB Control database will have been created if it did not already exist.

The Postgres application menu contains a new item for the xDB Replication Console.

Note: On some Linux systems, you may have to restart the server before you can see the xDB Replication Console choice in the application menu.

The following files are created that you may need during the configuration process.
