    String^ get ();
    void set (String^ value);

public function set Distributor (value : String)

Property Value

The name of the Distributor used by the Publisher.


The Distributor is the SQL Server computer on which the snapshots are stored, and on which the replication history and statistics are logged.

If the DistributorNetwork and DistributorAddress properties are specified, these properties are used instead of the Distributor property when connecting to the Distributor.

The Distributor property is optional. If none of the Distributor connection properties are specified, it is assumed that the Publisher and Distributor are on the same instance of SQL Server, and Publisher connection properties are used when connecting to the Distributor. However, if you set any of the Distributor properties, you must set all of the required Distributor properties.

Thread Safety
