Replication: Transactional: Multi Publications, One Subscriber.

Greetings All, I was hoping that a replication sage might be able to
answer a question for me.

I want to have one subscriber subscribing to N publishers. I
essentially have a company that has a main headquarters and three
satellite offices. I want each of the satellite offices to push their
data up to the master database. From what I have read it seems like
this should not be a problem. Some questions that come to mind are:

1.) Does the master need to be read only or can it be configured to be
updateable as well?
2.) Can the distribution agent on all the publishers be set to
continuously distribute or should it be staggered so as not to cause a
problem when another distribution agent is running?
3.) If the distribution is set to "delay distribution" will this cause
changes on the subscriber to be pushed out to the publishers?
In this database guid's are used as pk's so the issue of pk collisions
is not a problem.

I hope that this question is not too vague. My experience thus far
with replication has been simple one way transactional and simple
merge replication.

You might want to post this in microsoft.publi c.sqlserver.rep lication, where
there are probably more replication sages than in this newsgroup.

Q #1 1.) Does the master need to be read only or can it be configured to be
updateable as well?
A. The subscriber database can be updated by users on that end, it
does not need to be read only.

Q #2 continuously distribute or should it be staggered so as not to cause a
problem when another distribution agent is running?
A. It can be done either way without issue.

Q #3 3.) If the distribution is set to "delay distribution" will this cause
changes on the subscriber to be pushed out to the publishers?


A. No.
All, I have answered my own questions since I posted this missive.

Hi, For some magical reason, my database replication has suddenly stopped working. I modified the publication but the Distribution agent will not run; the snapshot does not get applied to the subscriber, and changes made at the publisher do not get replicated. My configuration is: Transactional Replication with a 'Pull' Subscription. The Subscriber is Updateable with Immediate Updates

I have taken over a transactional replication setup that is being used for fault tolerance (I know, I know...). The scenario I am concerned with is where the publisher goes down due to failure, so we need to point our application at the subscriber and start updating the data there. We are not using the immediate updating option. How do I go about re-syncing the publisher with the data that been added to, or changed on the subscriber,...

I am experiencing problems replicating (transactional) from SQL Server 2000 sp3 to DB2 v8.2 (running on Red Hat Linux). I have created an OLE-DB linked server to DB2. The connection connects successfully in EM and I can query the DB2 tables using the OPENQUERY function. I have successfully added the linked server connection as a Subscriber. I have now set up a Push Subscription to DB2 from one of my Publications.

Hello, I am learning SQL Server 2005 Express. I need to test replication but when I run New Subscription Wizard I got error: "There are no publications to which you can subscribe, either because this server has no publications or because you do not have sufficient privileges to access the publications." I see no option for publications. Does this mean that in Express I cannot run replication? If I can, how? Thank you very much /RAM/

Hi, I am setting up transactional replication and have run into a problem… Can anyone help? The table I am publishing is called Area. The table, Area, is the same on both the publisher and the subscriber. When executing transactional replication, the error I get from the distribution agent is:- Cannot update identity column 'AreaId'.

First a bit about what I' trying to do. I'm running SQL Server 2005 Developer edition on my dev box. I've got two instances set up and am trying to set up transactional replication (with both immediate and queued updates) between the two instances. The windows account I'm using to run the replication agents (dist, logreader, snapshot and queuereader) is a domain account with the same rights as the SQLServerAgent on my box.

Hi All, I have a table with a column DeletedDate which stores a logical delete of a record. I need to set up transactional replication for reporting purposes that this deleted records should not be replicated to the subscriber. That is, if i see a value on the DeletedDate, I don't want that record to be picked up for replication.

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.
