    Unanswered: Replication/Admin Help

    We run a small business with a LAN of 2 pcs, a laptop pc, and a web server that runs Win2k Server with Exchange on it. My pc is used for most of the development and it also houses SQL Server (Developer) 2k. We have SQL Server (Developer) installed on the other network pc as well.

    Here's the problem: We sometimes have to take my pc with us to use at different sites (with no internet connectivity at the time). When this happens, any data access on our web site is 'down' because our web data is in the sql server db on my machine. I want to replicate the db on the other pc so that we can take that machine to the different sites. I am having trouble getting this done.

    Can someone give me some direction? Is there a good tutorial or a book or whatever somewhere? I am really in need of some sql server admin knowledgebase.

    Thanks!!

    merge?

    Have you considered merge replication? you could then publish to your network sites from either computer with transactional publications and have the two "master" databases have a merge publication between them. When the machine goes off site, the other will continue to provide data to the site and when the other machine returns, any update made to it can be merged with the local machine.

    if this will do the trick, books online should have all you need as far as setting it up goes...
