ReplicationDatabase.EnabledMergePublishing Property

Gets or sets whether the database is enabled for merge publishing or not.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in microsoft.sqlserver.rmo.dll)

public bool EnabledMergePublishing { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_EnabledMergePublishing ()

/** @property */
public void set_EnabledMergePublishing (boolean value)

public function get EnabledMergePublishing () : boolean

public function set EnabledMergePublishing (value : boolean)

Property Value

A Boolean value that specifies whether the database is enabled for merge publishing or not. If true, the database is enabled for merge publishing. If false, the database is not enabled for merge publishing.

The EnabledMergePublishing property can only be set by members of the sysadmin fixed server role.

The EnabledMergePublishing property can be retrieved by the sysadmin fixed server role on the server, by the db_owner fixed database role on the replication database, and by a user in the public access list (PAL) for a publication published from the replication database.

Setting EnabledMergePublishing is equivalent to executing sp_replicationdboption (Transact-SQL).

Getting EnabledMergePublishing is equivalent to executing sp_helpreplicationdboption (Transact-SQL).

The EnabledMergePublishing property is available with SQL Server 7.0, SQL Server 2000, and SQL Server 2005.

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.


This example enables merge publishing on AdventureWorks.

// Set the server and database names
string distributionDbName = "distribution";
string publisherName = publisherInstance;
string publicationDbName = "AdventureWorks";

DistributionDatabase distributionDb;
ReplicationServer distributor;
DistributionPublisher publisher;
ReplicationDatabase publicationDb;

// Create a connection to the server using Windows Authentication.
ServerConnection conn = new ServerConnection(publisherName);

try
{
    // Connect to the server acting as the Distributor 
    // and local Publisher.
    conn.Connect();

    // Define the distribution database at the Distributor,
    // but do not create it now.
    distributionDb = new DistributionDatabase(distributionDbName, conn);
    distributionDb.MaxDistributionRetention = 96;
    distributionDb.HistoryRetention = 120;

    // Set the Distributor properties and install the Distributor.
    // This also creates the specified distribution database.
    distributor = new ReplicationServer(conn);
    distributor.InstallDistributor((string)null, distributionDb);

    // Set the Publisher properties and install the Publisher.
    publisher = new DistributionPublisher(publisherName, conn);
    publisher.DistributionDatabase = distributionDb.Name;
    publisher.WorkingDirectory = @"\\" + publisherName + @"\repldata";
    publisher.PublisherSecurity.WindowsAuthentication = true;
    publisher.Create();

    // Enable AdventureWorks as a publication database.
    publicationDb = new ReplicationDatabase(publicationDbName, conn);

    publicationDb.EnabledTransPublishing = true;
    publicationDb.EnabledMergePublishing = true;
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    // Implement appropriate error handling here.
    throw new ApplicationException("An error occured when installing distribution and publishing.", ex);
}
finally
{
    conn.Disconnect();
}

This example disables merge publishing on AdventureWorks.

// using Windows Authentication.
ServerConnection publisherConn = new ServerConnection(publisherName);
ServerConnection distributorConn = new ServerConnection(distributorName);

// Create the objects we need.
ReplicationServer distributor =
    new ReplicationServer(distributorConn);
DistributionPublisher publisher;
DistributionDatabase distributionDb =
    new DistributionDatabase(distributionDbName, distributorConn);
ReplicationDatabase publicationDb;
publicationDb = new ReplicationDatabase(publicationDbName, publisherConn);

    // Connect to the Publisher and Distributor.

            // and distribution databases must already be uninstalled,
            // and that no local databases be enabled for publishing.
            distributor.UninstallDistributor(false);
