I Have setup a remote distributor for my replication setup with the Backup with Sync option enabled. I am taking full backup of distribution db once a day and Tlog Backups once every hour. Same backup policy is applied in Subscriber for the Subscription database. Also i have set the minumum dist retention period as 25 hours on distribution db. If my distributor server goes down, what are the steps for recovering my distribution db? As per my knowledge, we'll have to restore the distribution db with the available backup files. But how will i let my Publisher know that distribution server name has changed?
