Section Number and Name: 
4.4.2. Database Regions and Replication - Only enable database synchronization on subordinate servers with replication worker
settings already configured. Do not enable more than one Database Synchronization role
per region.



Create 
Region Number 99
 to which all other VMDBs replicate.
Treat this as a 
read only
 database for reporting and charting.
Enable only the 
Reporting
, 
Scheduler
, and 
User Interface Server
 Roles. To perform
database maintenance items, such as scheduled backups, on the top-level region
(master), also enable the 
Database Operations
 role.
No additional settings aside from assigning the region ID. No need to configure any
replication.

Describe the issue: 
CF 4.2 does not have a replication worker anymore. Also it needs to be explicit if a HA region 99 database server(s) are supported. The following steps in the doc need to be updated to properly configure the remote regions to replicate their data to the master.

Suggestions for improvement: 
doc needs updating to support new CF 4.2 capabilities.
