A new release of Enterprise Architect might contain changes to the underlying project structure, such as more tables or changed queries. If you use Replication, you must take care with your upgrade.

Open Design Master Project first

After installing the new version of Enterprise Architect, it is very important that you open the design master before opening any of the replicas with the updated version.

Changes to the database design

Changes to the database design in a replicated project can ONLY be done to the design master; trying to update a replica at best does nothing, and at worst causes the update of the master to fail.

 

 

Propagate Changes

Design changes are propagated through to the replicas the next time the replicas are synchronized with the master.

 

Synchronize Replicas

Alternatively

One other strategy is to remove replication from a copy of the replica set, upgrade that project and convert it into a new design master from which new replicas are created.
