Return Value

Type: System.Collections.ArrayList
An ArrayList object containing an array of DistributionDatabase objects.


The EnumDistributionDatabases method can only be called when connected to a Distributor.

DistributionDatabase objects are returned with their properties already loaded.

The EnumDistributionDatabases method can be run by members of the public fixed database role who have access to distribution databases. File-related properties of DistributionDatabase are only loaded for members of the db_owner or replmonitor fixed database role on the distribution database and for users in the publication access list (PAL) for any publication whose Publisher is associated with this distribution database.

The EnumDistributionDatabases method is equivalent to the sp_helpdistributiondb (Transact-SQL) stored procedure.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.
