It's only confusing if you take 'sid' and 'rid' literally. The 'r' in
'rid' I asume means REMOTE (and I'm _guessing_ that the 's' in 'sid'
means something like SOURCE - have no idea if that's the case, it just
seem logical to me :).

Basically they say the exact same thing...

The 'sessionlog' goes (ONLY) on the provider. The number you specify
(sid or rid - whatever) must match the 'rid=' value you have on the

So if you have multiple consumers replicating against the same provider,
the consumer configuration option 'syncrepl' is/should be IDENTICAL...
