Dear All,

We have configured SQL 2008 R2 replication. Distributor is configured in continuous mode, publisher is scheduler is set to execute after every six hours. Now we want to change distributor schedule from continuous to schedule frequency without re-creating new replication. We have tried below store procedure, but it gives error message. Please help to distributor settings.

Does anyone know if it is possible to change the distributor for a publisher without dropping and re-creating replication or running new snapshots? It doesn't appear that it is, but I thought I'd ask the question. We're planning an upgrade of a remote distributor to 2008 R2 and I am investigating the option of a side-by-side approach. We replicate too much data to consider running snapshots.

EXEC sp_changepublication
@publication = 'your_publication_name',
@property = 'allow_anonymous',
@value = 'false'

EXEC sp_changepublication
@publication = 'your_publication_name',
@property = 'immediate_sync',
@value = 'false'
