Hi there,

We currently have one big SQL database hosted in one place with 80 sites attaching through citrix.

the database has around 1000 users over these 80 sites and occasionally get locks which casue the whole of the 80 sites to stop working.

we would like to split the 80 sites into clusters of say 6/7 sites therefore having around 30 different databases. We still need one central database for reporting and one for lookup management which would be read only on sites.

I am assuming that if each of the sites have there own person table the id's will be an issue if trying to re-group for reporting in one database?

What would be the best strategy...?

Is Replication the way forward ?
Or is a linked server for the codes and some sort of DTS push for the reporting a better way to go.

That sounds interesting.

I'm surprised 1000 users is giving you a problem.

Certainly a central database subscribers at various sites is a viable solution.

I assume you would want all the changes at each site to be reflected at all other sites ?

How big are your databases ?

What sort of data are you dealing with....calculated, lookup data etc..
