Hello,

I have a question about synchronizing SQL Server databases (on the same server).
I am not (yet) familiar with the synchronization bussiness in SQL Server, I am wondering what the best way is to set up the sync.

Not all the tables in the databases need to synced.
There is no need for a data or schema comparisons.

I've downloaded a trial version of the Red Gate Toolbelt, which seems to work great when you need to compare the two databases before the sync.

Is it best pratice to create a DTS package to do the sync? And schedule this every night in a batch? Or are there other tools which will work better?

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Heisa

You can set up snapshot replication if you want to...

If you only want certain tables, replication is the only choice. Other options will move all data/tables.

Be sure that you are not moving information that might be a security issue. There are people that worry about having things like credit cards, birthdates, etc. in a non-production environment when security is lower. you might want to use an SSIS package in that case and obfuscate date.
