    Hi Kenneth,
    Seems the scenario is not yet updated in your question bank rite?
    As I just came across it again.

    In the answer there is also mention of a read replica
    “start the replication from the Amazon RDS Read Replica.”
    Where is the read replica involved?

    I understood the setup is like:
    – create the IPSec VPN between AWS and on-premise
    – configure an on-premise MySQL instance
    – create mysqldump on AWS RDS MySQL QDB Instance
    – import mysqldump into on-premise MySQL instance (as ‘initial load’)
    – start replication from AWS RDS MySQL DB Instance to on-premise MySQL instance via the IPSec VPN

    Please confirm my understanding is correct.
