I am new to Replication.
I am trying to make an MS SQL server a publisher.
As i follow the wizard and choose the defaults "Yes, Use 'MyServer' as Distributer" in the first screen in the wizard, and "No, Use the following settings" in the second screen in the wizard.
When i click on FINISH i get:
"SQL Enterprise Manager could not configure 'MyServer' as the distributor for 'MyServer'
Error 21007: Cannot add the remote distributor at this time, Make sute that the local server is configured as a Distribution Publisher at the distributor.
Server Added
Server network name set
Remote logins for remote server .... has been dropped
Server dropped
"

Please help!.

Hi,
I thin you need to look in sysservers, of you perform a select * from sysservers (in Master database) this will give a list of the remote servers, look at MyServer and see what the srvid is (it should be 0 for local) if it is not you will need to use something like sp_dropserver and sp_addserver Myserver, local (check this in BOL for syntax)

Thanks The spirit, I will try this,
Now that brings up another question. ... I was having problems with sp_addserver and now that might answer.
The way i used it was:
sp_addserver 'MyServer', 'Local', 'MyServer'
and i kept wondering it 'local' should be with quotes or without quotes. or even the name of the server (e.g. 'ServerName')
which one is the correct one?
The bol does not really explain this.. and when i executed:
sp_addserver 'MyServer', 'Local', 'MyServer'
i did not get any error so i thought i did it right.

Thank you,

I think you should be able to use
sp_addserver 'Myserver',local

also try
select * from master..sysservers

this will tell you what you have.

srvid was indeed 0. So it seems like this was not the problem.

Other ideas?
