Replication or bcp or DTS?

Hi,
I have 2 instances of databases in 2 different cities.Data entry /
updations are going on at both the sides.At any point of time data in
both the databases should be same.Currently every alternate day, i am
performing update / insert / deletes on incremental basis on both the
sides.
Can I implement replcation? What r the requisites I have to follow for
replication?

I do not have permenant connectyvity but I need to connect using ISDN
line to a remote location as and when required for doing
synchrinisation of data.

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Rohit

I'm a little confused, since you say that at any point in time, the
contents of the databases should be the same. But then you talk about
not having permanent connectivity. Is that the connectivity between
the databases, or your own connectivity.

The gist of replication is that the I in ACID for transactions is
relaxed. That is, transactions should normally be Atomic, Consistent,
Immediate and D-something. With replication, you say that I does not
matter. A transaction can be replicated later at any time. This is good
if you have disconnected servers. For connected servers, replication
can still be acceptable, since the delay in most cases will not be
noticeable.

Since you need to send data in both directions, it looks as if you are
into merge replication. There are probably a bunch of requirements,
for instance the table must have GUID as keys. And then you need rules
to handle conflicts. (What if the same row is updated at both sites?)

My own knowledge only goes as far about this, so I would recommend you
to ask in microsoft.sqlse rver.public.rep lication.

Thanks for your reply. probably I wrote it in a wrong way.
There is no permenant connectivity between the two locations. Whenever
mself / management decides to Synch. the data I connect using ISDN
connection , perform export / Import Using BCP at both the sides and
then run SQL Script to push the incremental data inside the database.
Before going to the database it comes to a buffer database FROM text
files.
regards
Rohit

OK. As I said, merge replication could be worth looking into. But I know
too little of merge replication as well as your application to say for
sure that it is a good idea.

Hi, I've been using an Access application I wrote for an office with the front-end stored on all computers and the back-end on one of them serving as an Access file server. Now we're moving to a 2nd office 15 minutes down the road. Only one office will be open at a time, so theoretically it'd be possible to copy the back-end manually every night from one office to another, but frankly, that's pretty annoying.
