Property Value


A SubscriptionOption value that indicates the subscription type.



The type of subscription you choose depends on where the agent runs. With a push subscription, the Merge Agent runs at the Distributor; whereas, with a pull subscription, agent runs at the Subscriber. Anonymous subscriptions are required if you want to create a subscription without registering the subscription at the Publisher. This is necessary for cases such as Web synchronization, in which you cannot establish a SQL Server connection to the Publisher during subscription configuration.
