You can forward event messages from one ODS to another ODS on the same site. You also can forward event messages from an ODS on one site to an ODS defined as the Site Director on another site. After forwarding event messages from one site to another, you can configure the Site Director of the receiving site to forward the messages to the other ODS on that site as desired.

See Configuring an ODS Event Repository for information on how to forward event messages from one ODS to another ODS.


  • When you forward event messages, the messages are sent (copied) to the ODS repository defined as the Default Destination. The event messages are not removed from the ODS repository that sent the messages.
  • Use message forwarding for notification purposes, not as a backup or archiving method. Use standard SQL practices for backup, archiving, or replication purposes.
