Launch a new Slave-DB

After simply launching a slave template the DB is still empty and not connected to the master. Contents initialization and replication start needs to be executed as a separate action.


  • Go to your deployment (Manage -> Deployments).
  • Find the slave MySQL DB instance ("MySQL Additional" server template) and click the Launch button.

What feedback to expect

A notification on the Recent Events pane should indicate that the master DB image is pending.
To confirm it, you can:

  • Access the list of active servers (Manage -> Servers)
  • Locate the new 'pending' instance.
  • Click on its nickname to see its full information.
  • Make sure that the template field matches the name and version you launched (e.g., MySQL Additional v?) and that the creation time matches the time you launched it.
