SnapshotGenerationAgent.PublisherPassword Property

Sets the password used when connecting to the Publisher using SQL Server Authentication.

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

public string PublisherPassword { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

When possible, use Windows Authentication.

You should use the SecurePublisherPassword property to set the Publisher password. SecurePublisherPassword provides better security for the password while it exists in memory.

When possible, prompt users to enter security credentials at runtime. If you must store credentials, use the cryptographic services provided by the Microsoft Windows .NET Framework.

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

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