@myzamri Welcome to the Rockstor community.

We need to improve our replication docs unfrotunately.

Try entering/configuring the settings of the replication service first on the services page via the spanner against the replication service. I think we may still have a fragility (read but) on that front.

Thanks for the report and let us know if this gets you up-and-running.

Hope that helps.
