Setting Logins and Passwords When Creating Subscriptions

This topic covers the following areas related to creating subscriptions:

  • Distribution Agent (for subscriptions to transactional publications)

  • Immediate updating subscriptions (for immediate updating subscriptions to transactional publications)

  • Merge Agent (for subscriptions to merge publications)

For information about the permissions required by each agent, see Replication Agent Security Model.

There is either one Distribution Agent per subscription (an independent agent, the default for publications created in the New Publication Wizard) or one Distribution Agent per publication database and subscription database pair (a shared agent).

If a transactional publication allows immediate updating subscriptions, you must specify settings for the account replication uses to connect from the Subscriber to the Publisher.

Each merge subscription has its own Merge Agent that connects to and updates both the Publisher and the Subscriber.
