PullSubscription.PublicationDBName Property

Gets or sets the name of the publication database.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in microsoft.sqlserver.rmo.dll)
public string PublicationDBName { get; set; }
/** @property */
public String get_PublicationDBName ()

/** @property */
public void set_PublicationDBName (String value)

public function get PublicationDBName () : String

public function set PublicationDBName (value : String)

Property Value

A String value that specifies the name of the database where the publication is defined.

PublicationDBName is a required property and must be set before the subscription is created on the server. Once the subscription registration exists on the server, the PublicationDBName property cannot be changed.

The PublicationDBName property can only be retrieved by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Subscriber or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the subscription database.

The PublicationDBName property can only be set by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Subscriber or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the subscription database.

Retrieving the PublicationDBName property is equivalent to executing sp_helppullsubscription (Transact-SQL) or sp_helpmergepullsubscription (Transact-SQL).

Setting the PublicationDBName property is equivalent to executing sp_addpullsubscription (Transact-SQL) or sp_addmergepullsubscription (Transact-SQL).

The PublicationDBName property is available with SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 2000, and SQL Server 2005.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.

            // Register the subscription with the Publisher.
            publication.MakePullSubscriptionWellKnown(
                subscriberName, subscriptionDbName,
                SubscriptionSyncType.Automatic,
                TransSubscriberType.ReadOnly);

    throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
        "The subscription to {0} could not be created.", publicationName), ex);
}
finally
{
    subscriberConn.Disconnect();
    publisherConn.Disconnect();
}

Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
