AddAlternatePublisher Method

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The AddAlternatePublisher method adds a server to a list of alternate Publishers. Subscribers to a publication can synchronize with listed alternate Publishers.

object.AddAlternatePublisher(szAlternatePublisher ,szAlternatePublicationDB ,szAlternatePublication , 
[ szAlternateDistributor ] , 
[ szFriendlyName ] )

object

Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.

szAlternatePublisher

String that specifies the name of the alternate Publisher.

szAlternatePublicationDB

String that specifies the name of the publication database.

szAlternatePublication

String that specifies the name of the publication.

szAlternateDistributor

String that specifies the name of the Distributor for the alternate Publisher.

szFriendlyName

String that specifies a description for the alternate Publisher.

HRESULT AddAlternatePublisher(
SQLDMO_LPCSTR pszAlternatePublisher, 
SQLDMO_LPCSTR pszAlternatePublicationDB, 
SQLDMO_LPCSTR pszAlternatePublication, 
SQLDMO_LPCSTR pszAlternateDistributor, 
SQLDMO_LPCSTR pszFriendlyName);

Use the AddAlternatePublisher method to add a server to a list of alternate Publishers to which Subscribers can synchronize. The list is stored at both the Publisher and Subscriber. A Subscriber can run the EnumAlternatePublishers method to obtain a list of enabled alternate Publishers and potential alternate Publishers. Subscribers can then synchronize with any listed enabled alternate Publisher.

Use the RemoveAlternatePublisher method to remove a server from the list of alternate Publishers.

NoteNote

If an application calls AddAlternatePublisher on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000" are returned.
