Subject Re: Database 'security' and replication
Date Fri, 26 Apr 2013 19:10:33 GMT
Security settings remain local, they are deliberately not replicated.
The idea is that the security settings are under the control of the
owner of the server, it would be inappropriate for someone else to
alter security settings on a remote server.
