Hi experts.
I want to republish data in sql server. Scenario is like this.

SERVER A           SERVER B                        SERVER C
Publisher    -->    Subscriber/Publisher  -->  Subscriber

Server A publish data (Merge/push to SERVER B)
Server B publish data (Merge/push to SERVER C)

Can be done this type of publishing.?
Is there any way to doing this type of publishing.

Cant you use SERVER A as publisher to both B and C (or is there other data on B that dont exist on A ?)

For complicated data merge and datawarehouse solutions, I think that I would have buildt it in DTS instead.

Yes it is, and used to save/optimize bandwith when slower connections exists for exampel.

From Booksonline:
"The republisher model uses two servers to publish the same data. The Publisher sends data to a Subscriber, which then republishes the data to any number of Subscribers. This is useful when a Publisher must send data to Subscribers over a slow or expensive communications link. If there are a number of Subscribers on the far side of that link, using a republisher shifts the bulk of the distribution load to that side of the link."
