Property Value

Type: String
The password used when connecting locally to the Distributor using SQL Server Authentication.

Implements

ISnapshotGenerationAgent.DistributorPassword

When possible, use Windows Authentication.

You should use the SecureDistributorPassword property to set the Distributor password. SecureDistributorPassword provides better security for the password while it exists in memory.

When possible, prompt users to enter security credentials at runtime. If you must store credentials, use the cryptographic services provided by the Microsoft Windows .NET Framework.

Stored passwords used to connect to the Distributor are never returned. Accessing this property will generate a PasswordWriteOnlyException exception.

This property is used only when DistributorSecurityMode is set to Standard.
