SQL 6.5 – to – SQL 2000 replicationHere is what we are trying to solve:<br /><br />-We have a SQL 6.5 server (version 6.50.25<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-11.gif’ alt=’8)’ /> we will call SQL65-A, on an NT 4.0 machine (version 4.00.1381), on Domain-A<br /><br />-We are trying to replicate directly to a SQL 2000 server (version 8.00.81<img src=’/community/emoticons/emotion-11.gif’ alt=’8)’ /> we will call SQL2000-A, on a Windows 2000 machine (version 5.00.2195), on Domain-B<br /><br />-We also have a SQL 6.5 server we will call SQL65-B in Domain-B<br /><br />-The domains are trusted<br /><br />-We get the error that it cannot connect to the SQL 2000 server when trying to replicate, even though I can register the SQL 2000 server as a Remote Server<br /><br />The work-around we have right now is replicating from SQL65-A to SQL65-B, then using SQL65-B as a subscriber as well as a distributor/publisher to SQL2000-A.<br /><br />
