Hi All,

New Company using trans and merge replication. Looking to rebuild to just use merge, but having difficulties coming up with suitable redundancy for a DR on the distribution agent.

The Distribuition agent will be a remote setup on a standalone box, whilst I am aware I can cluster this to give redundancy Im exploring other avenues and wish to know if it is possible to use a server alias on all clients and point to a mirrored distribution agent?

Any advice is welcome

Thx all
