If its setup as replicate, then just do what I suggested, but from a
client.  It should trigger the replicate

Hi Greg

Thanks for your answer.
Actually it more a server issue.
I have box A and BoxB each of them export /export folder
I have around 200Gigs of file on BoxA in /export  and I was hopping that
creating a volume exporting /export will trigger repilication on Box B.
It looks like it doesn't.
