Property Value

The agent profile name.


A profile defines behavior, such as time-out values. You can override the default values by creating a profile on the Distributor and specifying its name through the ProfileName property.

A profile contains a set of parameters that control the behavior of the SQL Server Reconciler. For example, the profile specifies the LoginTimeout and QueryTimeout values used by the SQL Server Reconciler. The profile is stored on the Distributor. The profile is read each time a subscription is synchronized. For more information, see "Agent Profiles" in SQL Server Books Online.

The profile allows you to easily change key parameters for synchronization. For example, if you have five SQL Server Compact Edition clients who share a profile and you want to change the query time-out value, you change the QueryTimeout value in the profile and all SQL Server Compact Edition clients will use the new QueryTimeout value.

You can also create different profiles for different SQL Server Compact Edition clients. For example, a SQL Server Compact Edition client that uses a dial-up Internet connection might use one time-out value while a client that uses a high-speed intranet connection might use a different time-out value. The ProfileName property is used to specify the name of the profile.

If the ProfileName property is not specified, the default profile values are used.
