I need some guidance here on dealing with an SQL Database.
I have an an SQL Database System running on the SQL Server Publisher replicated to a subscriber. I have made modification to the system . I need to know whether to effect the changes I need to run the Database update on both the the Publisher and the subscriber or only the publisher.
There can be differences depending you the sql server version you are using, the replication type you are using, and type of modification you are making. In many cases DDL changes on replicated objects can just be made on the publisher.
When you make the schema changes on the publisher, do they appear at the subscriber within the expected period of time (I don't know how often your distibutor agent runs)?
I don't have a SQL 2005 copy available but in 2008 R2 there is an option to define whether schema changes get replicated or not. Right click the publication -> Subscription Options -> Replicate schema options.
