public virtual string DistributorAddress { get; set; }
member this.DistributorAddress : string with get, set
Public Overridable Property DistributorAddress As String

Property Value


A String value that represents the Distributor address.



This property is required only when the DistributorNetwork property is set to a value other than DefaultNetwork.

This property is useful when you are configuring the Merge Agent to connect to the Distributor without having to use SQL Server Configuration Manager.

For example, if the Distributor is accessed over the Internet, DistributorNetwork can be set to TcpIPSockets and DistributorAddress can be set to a specific IP address.

If the DistributorNetwork property is TcpIPSockets or Multiprotocol is using TCP/IP, the value is in the form of 'IP address,socket' (such as ',1433').

If the Distributor connection properties are not specified, t is assumed that the Publisher and Distributor are the same instance of SQL Server and the Publisher connection properties will be used when connecting to the Distributor.
