Thanks again for your reply, Felix. I'm still a bit confused though,
I'm sorry to say. In your earlier reply to Jake, you said:

My config DOES have this setting. In your earlier comment you say
that it's not an issue that the secondary box might get promoted

current data will be lost..

Sorry to remain puzzled, appreciate the help;
