You must complete the following tasks before using the Extraction utility at a consolidated database.
Create message types for replication.
Add a publisher user ID to the database.
Add remote users to the database.
Add the publication to the database.
Created a subscription for the remote users.
If you need to specify message link parameters, you must have set them. See Setting message type control parameters.
When you use the Extraction utility to create a remote database, the user for which you are creating the database receives the same permissions they have in the consolidated database. Further, if the user is a member of any groups on the consolidated database, those group IDs are created in the remote database with the permissions they have in the consolidated database.
