IDMF - Meta Data Synchronization AX 2009

Hello All,

I have Production Application Object Server and Database on separate servers and similarly I have archive application object server and database.

After archiving the previous year data, I have lot of changes in AOT and Database in Production environment. If I have done meta data sync through IDMF, will it affect only database changes or both i.e application and database.

My guess is that it will update database only and later I have to copy production application folder to archive application folder.

Any suggestion from experts will be thankful.

Sayeed.

Any suggestion on this subject.
