Hello, I have been tasked to setup a 40 subscriber environment, via transactional "pull" replication. I have one publisher, and one dedicated distributor for roughly 650 articles to get distributed to 40 subscribers. The developer staff here thought that multiple distributors could be setup for the same publication, but that is not the case. Is is worth creating a second publication, with the same articles as in the first and having a second distributor to service 20 subscribers each ? or just go with the one distributor servicing all 40 ? If I do setup 2 publications on the same publisher, for the same DB and articles, will it help, or create contention on the publisher for those articles?
