SQL 2008 Data Replication through Transaction Logs

Posted on 2011-10-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Ok, so I have conferred with my third party software provider and I cannot do a basic transaction replication with our particular SQL database as it does not have all of the primary keys in place in order to do this.  Their tech suggested that I look into transaction log backups in order to keep short-time frame replication (15-30 minute range).

My question now is, what is the best way to go about this?  I am not very familiar with SQL and feel like I am working in the dark here.  He said I  would need to build some scripts to automate this, but that he could not help me anymore than pointing me in the right direction (our service agreement does not cover this sort of thing...)

Need some direction here please!
