As most of you know, there are very few people that are truly knowledgeable in regards to Stellent / Oracle UCM architecture! I am hoping to network should you know of anyone that would be interested in considering a 3 month project opportunity in the Atlanta area.

If you do happen to know of someone that would be interested in learning more about this opportunity, please feel free to forward my contact information! I am seeking an Oracle UCM (Stellent) Architect / Developer.

I really do appreciate the opportunity to network!

Hi Atul,

I have 2 independent UCM servers. I wanted to use the first one as Contribution and the second one as consumption.

How to configure Auto content Replication between these two servers.

Atul Kumar says May 30, 2011

@ ranganath n,
Is this for 10g UCM or 11g UCM

Ranganath N says May 30, 2011

This is for 11g UCM.

You can achieve this using replication feature in UCM
