MergeSynchronizationAgent.DistributorPassword Property

Sets the password that is used when connecting to the Distributor using SQL Server Authentication.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication.dll)

public virtual string DistributorPassword { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
The password.

Implements

IMergeSynchronizationAgent.DistributorPassword

When it is possible, we recommend that users enter security credentials at run time. If you must store credentials, use the cryptographic services provided by the Microsoft .NET Framework.

For a push subscription, the Merge Agent always connects to the Distributor locally by using Windows Integrated Authentication, and this property is ignored.

Stored passwords that are used to connect to the Distributor are never returned. Accessing this property will generate a PasswordWriteOnlyException exception.

This property is used only when DistributorSecurityMode is set to Standard.

If the Distributor connection properties are not specified, it is assumed that the Publisher and Distributor are the same instance of SQL Server, and that Publisher connection properties will be used when connecting to the Distributor.
