The IBM i remote journal function does not allow writing journal entries directly to the target journal receiver. This restriction severely limits the usefulness of cascading remote journals in a managed availability environment.

MIMIX user journal replication does not support a cascading environment in which remote journal receivers on the target system are also source journal receivers for a third system.

Users who require this type of environment may use multiple installations of MIMIX, implementing apply side journaling in one installation and using remote journaling to replicate the applied transactions to a third system.
