After a corrupted publisher

P: n/a
Ron
Hi All,

I am fairly new to MS SQL Replication. I have two servers one is setup
as the publisher and the other is setup as both the subscriber and the
distributor.

Due to server reboots, the publicher DB became corrupted therefore we
pointed all activity to the subscriber DB. Now we would like to bring
back the publisher online, but we do not have a backup.

My Question is, can we restore the publisher DB from the backup of the
subscriber and reinstate replication? if yes could someone please
explain the process as I am new to SQL and replication.

Question two, someone metioned while re-establishing replication I can
regenerate the DB by doing a snapshot. How can I do that on the
publisher.

If you have any other method that will help bring back the publisher
and copy the updated data from the suscriber to the publisher and
re-instate replication that would be great.

PS: the reason why we know the publisher is corrupted is due to a DBCC
CHECKDB(XXX) which gave us a lot of errors.

Thank you much,

Ron
