I am using SQL 2005 Enterprise Edition, I want to create a user who do not have update rights on the database (allowing read and write), but he can create replication for the same database.
As I have seen in some microsoft links - user should have sysadmin rights to configure distribution, publisher etc.
Is it possible that I can deny update rights for user who have sysadmin role?
No... you cannot deny any priv to someone who's a member of the sysadmin role. I also wouldn't let a "user" do anything as serious as replication unless they could, indeed, be trusted with both the role and the task at hand. Even then, it's not likely I'd ever allow a "user" to setup replication on servers that I'm charged with.
