Distributor2 Object

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The Distributor2 object represents the replication Distributor for an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and later and extends the functionality of the DistributionPublisher object.

The Distributor2 object extends the functionality of the Distributor object for use with features that were introduced in SQL Server 2000. It also inherits the properties and methods of the Distributor object. With the Distributor2 object, you can:

  • Retrieve information about third-party publications.

  • Retrieve the execution status of Queue Reader Agents.

The methods of the Distributor2 object may not be compatible with instances of SQL Server version 7.0 or earlier. For more information about using the Distributor2 object in an application that also runs with an instance of SQL Server 7.0, refer to the Remarks section for specific methods. For more information, see Programming Extended SQL-DMO Objects.
