I'm setting up replication from a 12.1 oracle database to a 12.1 oracle database using SP 8.6.6. Both databases are on the same linux server. I set up the source and started cop via
sp_cop -ukmsd02_2101 &
Then I setup up the target and tried to start cop. I got this error: Cop: Address already in use tcp server bind addr 188.8.131.52 port 19576 - exiting [module cop].
Cop was running when I set up the target. Is that the problem? What are the special considerations when replicating on the same server?
