Since SQL Server replications depends on the server name to work correctly.
We suggest you use the server name instead of IP address. If there are
difficulties such as name resolution to prevent you using the server name
directly, you can use alias: just use the Client Network Utility to add
alias to your publisher and distributor:
- When you create alias, the Server alias must be the same as the real
- You can then select TCP/IP as the network library and specify IP address
for the server name.
