I need to replicate a Database hosted on a SQL 2005 server std (Publisher) to SQL 2012 server std (Subscriber), I understand that there is no issue there because they are 2 major releases apart.
I wish to use a separate Distributor Server for performance, what version can be used here. I can't seem to find this documented for my scenario. I would use 2016 if possible?
The replication type is most likely to be snapshot.
