Add and Remove Publishers from Replication Monitor

The server from which you launch Replication Monitor is automatically added to the monitor if it is a Publisher. Additional Publishers can be added through the Add Publisher dialog box. After adding a Publisher, it is displayed in a group in the left pane of the monitor. The My Publishers group is included by default, but you can create new groups to manage one or more replication topologies. For information about starting Replication Monitor, see Start the Replication Monitor.
