Select the Publication node under the primary node for which you wish to perform snapshot replication.
Open the Snapshot dialog box in any of the following ways:
Select the Verbose Output check box only if you want to display the output from the snapshot in the dialog box. This option should be left unchecked in a network address translation (NAT) environment as a large amount of output from the snapshot may delay the response from the Snapshot dialog box. Click the Snapshot button to start snapshot replication.
Snapshot Taken Successfully appears if the snapshot was successful. Click the OK button. If the snapshot was not successful, scroll through the messages in the Snapshot dialog box window if Verbose Output was selected or check the log files.

Be sure an initial snapshot replication has been performed from the primary definition node to every other primary node in the multi-primary replication system. If a newly added primary node did not undergo an initial snapshot, any subsequent synchronization replication may fail to apply the transactions to that primary node. The initial snapshot could be taken when the primary node is first added (see Section 6.3
) or by performing an on demand snapshot (see Section 6.5.1
Select the Publication node under any primary node. Regardless of the primary node chosen, synchronization is applied to every primary node pair in the replication system.
Open the Synchronize dialog box in any of the following ways:
Click the Synchronize button to start synchronization replication.
Publication Synchronized Successfully appears if the synchronization was successful. Click the OK button. If the synchronization was not successful, an error message is displayed.
