sp_requestpeertopologyinfo is used in peer-to-peer transactional replication. Execute sp_requestpeertopologyinfo before executing sp_gettopologyinfo. These procedures are used by the Configure Peer-to-Peer Topology Wizard, but they can also be used directly if you require topology information in an XML format.
