Replication and geometric networks

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

All the feature classes that participate in a geometric network are replicated together to maintain the connectivity of the network in the child replica. Individual network classes cannot be excluded from the replication. Where the replication boundary intersects a network edge, the next junction in the network will automatically be included in the replica.

Replicating geometric networks

In this example, all the network elements that intersect with the filter extent are replicated from the parent geodatabase. Therefore, junction j2 and edges e1, e7, and e8 are all replicated. Junctions j1, j7, and j4 will also automatically be included in the replication to maintain connectivity in the child geodatabase.
