Reexporting a data change message

If for some reason an exported unacknowledged data change message is lost in transit or needs to be resent, you can reexport data changes and send them again. To do this, use the ReExport Unacknowledged Messages utility.


Reexporting a data change message will not include the most recent edits. It will only include the edits that were sent in the original data change message.

This option is not available for checkout replicas. For checkout replicas, run the Export command again to achieve the same result.

  1. The ReExport Unacknowledged Messages wizard can be opened from the Distributed Geodatabase toolbar or from the context menu of a geodatabase or geodata service.
    • In ArcMap, open the Distributed Geodatabase toolbar and click the ReExport Unacknowledged Messages button.
    • In the Catalog window, right-click the geodatabase or geodata service published through ArcGIS Server from which you want to reexport data changes, point to Distributed Geodatabase and click Re-Export Unacknowledged Messages.

    The wizard supports both local and remote geodatabases. Remote geodatabases are accessed in ArcMap through map services that have the geodata access capability enabled.

  2. Select the replica from which you would like to reexport unacknowledged messages.

    The replica type is displayed.

  3. Specify a name for the delta database or delta XML file to be created.
  4. Choose to include all unacknowledged changes or only the most recent unacknowledged changes.

    The most recent changes are those made since the last exported data change message.
