The Synchronize command synchronizes the target database with a source instance and database specified in the Source element. Optionally, the Synchronize command synchronizes remote partitions defined on the source database.

Depending on the storage mode used by objects stored in the backup file, the Synchronize command synchronizes information as listed in the following table.

Storage mode

Information

Multidimensional OLAP (MOLAP)

Source data, aggregations, and metadata

Hybrid OLAP (HOLAP)

Aggregations and metadata

Relational OLAP (ROLAP)

Metadata

During a Synchronize command, a read lock is placed on the source database and a write lock is placed on the target database. Both locks are released after the Synchronize command has completed.

For more information about synchronizing databases, see Backing Up, Restoring, and Synchronizing Databases (XMLA).
