    Great article Sebastian. One that I am highly interested in.

    Can I ask what you prerequisites are there which make a database a good candidate for merge replication across different sites over a geographical difference?

    Is it just an issue of bandwidth? Are there other requirements such as certain schema modifications, identity column being required, or other structural requirements?

    What would stop a database from being a candidate for replication?

    thanks.

    Hi Sebastian, It's nice article. For your information, I started my carreer in DBA very recently, though I worked in other technical skillset that too because of my interese in the database. And I started to learn the concept of Replication and found that your articles is very information and easy to understand for beginners too.

    Thanks a lot.

    This article is very easy to follow, I have one "small" problem though. I have to problems setting up my server (which I'm testing using just that one server for the distributor, publisher and subscriber). However, I get an error when I first try running the subscription, the error that I get is "The process could not execute 'sp_replcmds' on servername" I'm not really sure what is the problem. Can you redirect me in the right way to solve this? or should I post my question in one of the forums?

    thank you.

    Sebastian, I think that your article is very good for a step 1. Looking forward to seeing the rest. I do have a problem though, with the publication steps. You state that the next 3 screens are for setting up the filter, but you do not go into filters. Will this also be covered later?

    I can't possibly imagine we are. That's what the "Report!" button is for (among other things). 😀

    Sebastian thank you for a great series of articles it really explains replication without tech-savvy vocabulary.

    However, I'm having a problem. At least I think so, because I'm new in replication. 🙂

    When I try to configure distribution for a database restored from *.bak file I can't do it.

    It keeps telling me that database name used for distribution already exist.

    Then, I dropped the database hoping this would help and it seemed it did, except that following the process described in

    Stairway to SQL Server Replication: Level 1 - Introduction to SQL Server Replication

    created my DB in system databases. :O

    Why is that so, and what am I doing wrong?

    Please help.
