By default, when a new slave DB instance is launched with the "MySQL Additional" server template, it will automatically sync itself to the master DB and start replication once the contents of the master DB have been copied over. (The "MySQL Additional" server template includes "DB slave init at boot" as a boot script.)
If a slave DB instance is launched in a different way and did not automatically sync itself with the master DB, you can manually initialize the slave DB by running the "DB slave init" operational action.
The Recent Events pane will highlight the progress of the operation. If the action is not completed successfully and there is a failure message, click on the name of the action in the Recent Events pane for a detailed output that you can use for troubleshooting.
