Hi again,

A lot of this information has been very useful.  I did have a question I 
could not answer. I noticed in the Deployment Recommendations docs, it 
says not to have any more than 4 replication agreements. Perhaps I am 
missing something, but I don't see how to get a replica to be a master 
to be able to create another replicate?  Am I missing something obvious 

Thank you,
