You should commit any property changes to the ReplicationMonitor object before calling this method because properties of this object may need to be loaded if they have not been loaded already.
If a Distributor is not installed or the distribution database is not created, this method throws an exception.
The method can only be retrieved by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Distributor, by members of the db_owner or replmonitor fixed database role in the distribution database, or by users in the publication access list (PAL) of a publication that uses the Distributor.
Retrieving is equivalent to executing sp_helpdistpublisher (Transact-SQL).
