As of SEP sesam v. 4.4.3 Tigon, it is possible to use initial seed for setting up new Si3 deduplication store for replication. When replicating from origin to new Si3 store, the save sets on the new Si3 deduplication store are recognized and the content of the new Si3 store is updated in the SEP sesam database.
