I am having trouble finding out what way Replication affects a Database Maintenance Plan.

I have SQL SERVER 2000 publisher to a few MSDE pull subscriptions (merge replication).  I would like to scehdule optimization and integrity checks, but I am not sure how replication will affect this task.  How will the db checks affect my replicated environment?  With replication in place, does this mean I must schedule a similar plan for each replica?

Thanks in advance

As long as you don't change the schema on your underlying database, you can still defrag indexes and backup like normal.  As far as setting up maint plans on your replicated clients--the same thing applies....

Thanks arbert,

Ok so Checking and Rebuilding indexes will not affect or be affected by replication.  

The logs generated indicate that the indexes are being rebuilt.
So then what is it that is being changed by an integrity check at each replica?  I guess what I'm looking for is if you could confirm the notion that indexes are not included in replication.
