I have the following:

Server_A_Old (2005)
Server_A_New (2008)

Server_B1 (2005)

Server_B2 (2005)

Right now, only Old_Server_A is active, contains a production DB of ~ 70 GB and serves the users on all three sites.

We want to re-establish the merge replication (data is generated on all three sites). There is decent network connection between A and B1, and between B1 and B2, but pretty poor one between A and B2.

What is the simplest way to create a replication where B1 is the publisher for both B2 and A_new? Backup/restore or detach/attach of A_old to B1 might be critical, because of downtime window needed to transfer 70 GB.

Thanks for any ideas!
