Hello, I need some assistance.
My machines are clustered using SteelEye and not windows technology and in the event of failover require a manual failover, I have configured replication however I cannot script the task as we recieve a 20036 error which i've documented elsewhere. The problem is caused because the @@Server returns the Alias which was configured on both machines after renaming them however the SERVERPROPERTY('ServerName')) returns the servername\instance name.
This is causing the replication script to fail as it is using SERVERPROPERTY('ServerName')) to return the servername and cannot recognise that it is a clustered server. Is there a way of renaming somethng(not the @@servername) so that i can script out the replication settings. Or is there a way to amend the system proc to use @@Servername in the code instead of the SERVERPROPERTY('ServerName')).
