I have transactional replication on SQL2000 with 60 subscribers.
For disaster recovery procedure i need to establish new replication within 15 minutes on another server with same subscribers.
Can i just confogure another DB as publisher and connect exist subscribers to new publisher ??
Before we begin, a cluster might be a better solution for this case. Either active-active or active-passive will allow you to avoid the down time and the hassle of the move. There is a trade off in terms of the complexity of the cluster, but that still seems like a better choice to me for your situation.
I'd suggest that you check KB #822400 for more details on Disaster Recovery for SQL Server.
First of all thank you for answering.
Now i have cluster in my environment (Active / Passive ) .I am talking about real disaster - cluster have gone , so i need to move the publisher during minimal time to another location.
