Generate SQL Script (Replication Objects)

A replication script contains the Transact-SQL system stored procedures necessary to implement the replication components scripted, such as a publication or subscription. All replication components in a topology should be scripted as part of a disaster recovery plan, and scripts can also be used to automate repetitive tasks. Replication offers two dialog boxes for scripting replication objects:

  • Generate SQL Script, which is available from the context menu of the Replication folder and all subfolders in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio. This dialog box allows you to script all replication objects on an instance of Microsoft SQL Server.

  • Generate SQL Script <ObjectName>, which is available from the context menu for publications and subscriptions. This dialog box allows you to script individual objects.

These dialog boxes script objects on a single instance of SQL Server; they do not connect to other instances to script related objects.

Distributor properties

Select to script stored procedures to: enable or disable the Distributor; add or drop Publishers associated with the Distributor; and create or drop the distribution database.

Publications in the following data sources

Select to script stored procedures to: enable or disable publishing; and create or drop publications, articles, push subscriptions, and replication jobs.

Subscriptions in the following data sources

Select to script stored procedures to create or drop pull subscriptions and replication jobs.

To create or enable the components and To drop or disable the components

Specify whether the script should include commands for creating or dropping a replication object. Microsoft recommends that you use the dialog box to create a set of scripts for enabling and disabling components.

Replication jobs

Select to script replication jobs in addition to stored procedure calls. This option is available only when scripting from a Distributor.

Replication stored procedures create the necessary jobs when they are executed, so it is not required to select this option. However, it can be useful to have a record of the jobs created in case an individual job must be recreated.

To create or enable the components and To drop or disable the components

Specify whether the script should include commands for creating or dropping a replication object. Microsoft recommends that you use the dialog box, creating a set of scripts for enabling and disabling components.

Replication jobs

This option is available only from the Generate SQL Script dialog box.
