MergeSynchronizationAgent.DistributorSecurityMode Property

Topic Status: Some information in this topic is pre-release and subject to change in future releases. Pre-release information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2014.

Gets or sets the security mode used when connecting to the Distributor.

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

abstract DistributorSecurityMode : SecurityMode with get, set 
override DistributorSecurityMode : SecurityMode with get, set

Property Value

Type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication.SecurityMode
A SecurityMode value that represents the security mode.

Implements

IMergeSynchronizationAgent.DistributorSecurityMode

When possible, use Windows Authentication.

If the value is Standard, the DistributorLogin and DistributorPassword properties must also be specified.

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

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.
