SDI replication task - Unable to make job real-time


I am trying to create a real-time replication task for replicating a table from one HANA system into another HANA system. This is a scenario from HANA Academy on YouTube, but that was based on HANA 1 SP10 and I am on HANA 2 SP02 so things look a bit different.
( )

I have created the remote source and defined the replication task.
When I execute it as an 'initial load' it works fine - data is replicated correctly in the target table.

Now I want to make the task real-time, so when changes happen in the source, they automatically replicate to the target.
In the video, and in the manual, there is a reference to the option 'Initial load only' - see the screen capture from the video in the picture below:

This option is not available on my screen in HANA 2.0 SP02. I do have a button for 'Replication Behavior' but that only has two options:
- Initial Load Only
- No Data Transfer

(See screenshot below)

According to the manual, this Replication Behaviour should have more options, including:

- Initial + Real time
- Real time
and the same again, 'with structure'.

Why do I not see those options and..... how can I get my replication task to replicate in realime?

Thanks in advance for your help!

    I had a reply from SAP explaining I was using the wrong HANA adapter. The one I was using was HANA (ODBC). There is now also a HANA Agent based Adapter. I changed the remote source and now it is working fine.
