The procedure for converting a single server database into a
clustered one will be specified later. For 6.0, there is no
automatic way of doing this.
One can take an existing database and convert it to clustered
operation by copying the initial database to each node of the
cluster. Set up the database so that each node would run an
identical copy. Then make the cluster.ini files.
Start the servers. Connect to the master and run the
partitioning statements for all keys of all tables that are to be
managed by the cluster.
At this point, each database will also hold rows that are not
its responsibility, unless of course all tables are declared as
replicated. The rows that are present and do not fall in the
partition managed by the host should be deleted.
This can be done with a stored procedure to be supplied
