Replication Between Different Versions of SQL Server

Hello,

We are trying to set up replication between different versions of SQL
Server (7 & 2000).

This is how the 2 servers are now setup:
DB1 - External web-server w/SQL Server 7
DB2 - Internal server w/SQL Server 2000

REPLICATION SETUP
This is how we need the replication to be set up. They are all
Transactional Replications.

DISTRIBUTION:
This is set up on DB2, which is running on 2000

WITH PUBLISHERS ON DB1, AND PULL SUBSCRIPTIONS ON DB2:
dbo.Employment_ App & dbo.Employ_Jobs (together in one replication)
dbo.Feedback
NOTE: This set of replications work some of the time, but make DB1 &
DB2 very slow when running. A lot of times, the jobs say "Retrying
Job", but they usually will eventually work.

WITH PUBLISHERS AND PUSH SUBSCRIPTIONS ON DB2:
dbo.Jobs
dbo.Releases
dbo.Search
NOTE: This set of replications used to work when DB1 & DB2 both ran on
SQL Server 7 with 2000 Enterprise Manager's. But since we moved the
data to an internal server (DB2) that runs on 2000, it doesn't work at
all.

We've researched the problem, and found an article by MS called
"Replicatio n Between Different Versions of SQL Server" at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...limpl_4joy.asp
that states that this setup should be possible (on Combination 3 for
Transactional Replications).

But it's not working at all. Are there some steps that we need to
check to have replication setup between 2 servers running on different
versions of SQL Server (7 & 2000)? Any & all help & advice is
appreciated. Thanks.

Just to follow up on this - I'd be very interested to know if anyone has
successfully got a replication to work with 6.5 as the publisher /
distribution and MSDE (7 or 2000) as the subscriber?

Thanks

Hi all, I am looking at a problem we encountered with replication. Our front-end and back-end are Microsoft Access 2000. We have a design master at the server and replicas at five notebooks. The notebooks are synchronized daily by the users via a form that uses Microsoft Jet and Replication Objects (JRO) and this works well. I have a few questions about this: 1. A problem occurs when two users change the same field in the same record

If anybody has had any experience with this, and/or if you can recommend a host who meets said requirements, I'd appreciate it if you'd post. ...

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.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
