MERGE Replication - easy to restore on new server?
I have two servers connected over the net using merge replication.
The publisher (and distributor) machine is being replaced by a new faster box. Can I simply backup the database and restore it on the new machine and expect replication to continue as before - or would replication require a whole new snapshot etc?
The database is several gig in size so I would like to avoid starting replication from scratch if at all possible.
