Anyone know how could I connect to 2 or more distributor for single publisher? I have an instance of sql server (publisher) with few db and I want it to connect to difference distributor. Currently I only saw one distributor exist and there is no option to create configure another one in EM.

    You can have only one distributor for a given server publications.

    The question is why you want two seperate distributor for the same publisher.
