MergeSubscriberType Enumeration

Enumeration additional types of subscriptions supported by merge replication.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo.dll)

public enum MergeSubscriberType

Member nameDescription
GlobalThe subscription is a server subscription. This type is typically used for Subscribers that republish data to other Subscribers.
LocalThe subscription is a client subscription. This type of subscription is appropriate for most Subscribers.
AnonymousThe pull subscription is not explicitly registered at the Publisher by using MakePullSubscriptionWellKnown. Anonymous subscriptions are required if you want to create a subscription without registering the subscription at the Publisher. This is necessary for cases such as Web synchronization, in which you cannot establish a SQL Server connection to the Publisher during subscription configuration.

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