Perform the following steps to add a new site to the replication group:
If copying the backup to the client takes a long time relative to the frequency with which log files are reclaimed using the db_archive utility or the DB_ENV->log_archive method, it may be necessary to suppress log reclamation until the newly restarted client has "caught up" and applied all log records generated during its downtime.
As with any Berkeley DB application, the database environment must be in a consistent state at application startup. This is most easily assured by running recovery at startup time in one thread or process; it is harmless to do this on both clients and masters even when not strictly necessary.
