I am just going through the beginning stages of replication and I am
beginning to set up the distribution site for the replication. I
select local, and the distribution database device and log device and
then click Okay. The problem is, I am receiving two errors that are
preventing me from setting up the distribution site. The two errors
are as follows:
"Unable to connect to site SYSTEST1 because SYSTEST1 is not defined as
a remote server at the site." and
"Could not connect to the remote server that is to be the distributor"
My question is WHY???? Why am I looking for a remote server when I am
trying to configure the distributor as local? SYSTEST1 is a remote
server on this box but the computer no longer exists and was only used
during the initial setup.
