Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo.dll)

public string HostName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: String
A String value.

The HostName property can only be retrieved by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Subscriber or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the subscription database.

The HostName property can only be set by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Subscriber or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the subscription database.

Retrieving the HostName property is equivalent to executing sp_helpmergepullsubscription.

Setting the HostName property is equivalent to executing sp_addmergepullsubscription_agent or sp_changemergepullsubscription.
