Unigueness of RID; changing RID
I am trying to improve my understanding of the RID before making many
large deployments of syncrepl.
My understanding is that the replica ID (RID) is unique within one
level of [provider] --> [consumer], [consumer],... relationship.
Here, an arrow --> represents replication of one directory tree from
provider to consumers, and
commas represent consumers at the same level, all replicating from the
same provider, and the
square brackets [...] represent one machine.
1. If there is a relationship like this, where at least one machine
acts simultaneously as consumer and provider
[provider] --> [consumer+provider] --> [consumer], [consumer],...
does the RID need to be unique within all these consumers at all
levels in the propagation of replication?
2. What are the consequences of changing the RID on a consumer?
Would this inevitably require a dump and restore?
Is the RID stored in the data? Where is it stored, besides in the
consumer's syncrepl configuration?
