Setting up SQL Server Replication

This is how to do it using the replication UI:

  1. Be sure that you are connected to the servers in SSMS on the server that is publishing the databases as the configured SA account, not a different login.
  2. You will need to have replication users set up – a Windows user as well as a SQL server user set up.
    • If this is a domain, only one domain user is required for replication. I use \ServiceRunner for this task. This user must have db_owner privileges on each database being replicated as well as db_owner on the system database called ‘distribution’ found on the master server. That database is created once initial setup of replication is done. If this is not on a domain, create the same user across both machines with the same password.
    • The SQL user – called 4LLrepl – must have the same permissions set up for the windows user above. This must be set up on both servers, the publisher and subscriber.
  3. If replication has never been set up on the server with the databases to be replicated, use the Configure Distribution Wizard to set this up by right clicking the Replication node and selecting that option.
    1. will act as its own distributor.
    2. The next screen asks for a path to set up replication – it has the local path to the replication root (e.g. C:\SQL\MSSQL13.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\ReplData), but it recommends a UNC fileshare path.
      1. Copy the path and open up Windows Explorer. Paste the path into the path bar.
      2. Go back a folder, right click the repldata folder, and select Sharing.
  • Share the folder allowing the Windows replication user read/write permissions.
  1. When done, copy the resulting path, \\\repldata
  2. Back in the wizard, paste the UNC path in and click Next.
  1. Next screen is distribution database details. Leave the defaults and click Next.
  2. Next screen is publisher defaults. Hit next.
  1. If not there, add the windows and sql replication users to SQL security.
    • If there are any unsafe assemblies in these databases, sysadmin server role is needed for both accounts.
    • The accounts must be db_owner for each database being replicated, as well as the system database called ‘distribution’.
    • The SQL user 4LLrepl also needs to exist on any subscriber servers as well.
    • If not using a domain account for ServiceRunner, the Windows account (ServiceRunner) would need to exist on each machine with the same password.
  2. The publisher’s firewall would need to be adjusted to allow the subscriber to connect.
  3. The subscriber’s firewall would need to be adjusted to allow the publisher to connect.
  4. Set up a publication for each database.
    • Right click the Local Publications node under the Replication node in the treeview for the publisher server and click New Publication.
    • Select the database to replicate.
    • Transactional publication.
    • Select everything to be included. NOTE – this does not include database synonyms which will have to be scripted to the target databases manually.
    • Next screen warns about things that could go wrong. If you see ‘Objects referenced by stored procedures are required’, most likely they are synonyms.
    • Next screen sets up filters for data.
    • Snapshot agent: Create a snapshot immediately should be checked. No need to check schedule agent.
    • Next screen is security. You will have to provide both the Windows and SQL replication accounts discussed earlier.
    • Wizard actions: Create the publication.
    • Name the publication the same as the DB.
    • Hit finish. The publication will be created. Launch Replication Monitor to ensure that the replication has started successfully.
  5. Add subscribers to each publication.
    • Publication: Select the publication to subscribe to.
    • Distribution Agent Location: Run agents at the distributor.
    • Subscribers: Add subscriber. It’s okay to connect to the DR as a windows user (e.g. you don’t have to be SA right now).
      1. Once you connect to DR using the standard connection dialog, an entry in the rows will be added. Select an existing database to put this data in or create a new one using the options found in the dropdown under Subscription Database.
      2. If creating a new database, be sure to set the owner of the database to the configured SA account (SA or 4LLSA), and select Simple Logging.
    • Distribution Agent Security: Click the ellipsis button to enter the Windows and SQL usernames and passwords.
    • Synchronization Schedule: Run continuously
    • Initialize Subscriptions: Run immediately
    • Wizard Actions: Create the subscription
  6. Add any missing synonyms to the target database.
  7. Grant permission for replication services to write to a specific folder for MSSQL. Without setting this, there will be a bunch of errors with an error message similar to “could not write temp files to a folder. System returned errorcode 5” (sic).
    • Grant everyone modify permissions to the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\130\COM (130=SQL 2016, 120=SQL 2014, 110=SQL 2012, etc)
  8. Set the max replicated text size on both servers. -1 means there is no limit.
  • sp_configure ‘max text repl size’, -1; Go; RECONFIGURE; GO

Troubleshooting

  • Be sure the owner of all jobs and databases are the configured SA account.
  • Be sure each publication’s Publication Access List includes both the Windows and SQL replication accounts.
  • Be sure all replicated tables have a PK defined.

So, instead of using the UI to get the pub/sub set up, add this to any database and use it:

/****** Object: StoredProcedure [dbo].[Replication_SetupSingleDatabase] Script Date: 12/15/2017 10:37:48 AM ******/

/*
PURPOSE
Creates or runs the scripts needed to set up replication between 2 servers, or destroy it.
Part of the script needs to be run in the context of the subscriber server to complete setup.
Made in response to how long it takes through the UI – no way we can keep wasting 15-60 minutes each setup.

If you’re running this for the first time – READ THIS FIRST. This script makes a lot of assumptions.
– Have you even set up replication to begin with, bro?!
– The publisher’s AND subscriber Windows AND SQL replication accounts have been created – both endpoints!
– If not on a domain, use 2 users, same account username and password.
– If on a domain, use a domain account.
– Use the same password for both SQL replication accounts.
– This account does not need login privileges, but may need ‘logon as batch job’ rights.
– The naming convention is \ServiceRunner for the service account and DKDrepl as the SQL account.
– If there are any UNSAFE assemblies in any databases, the SQL replication account needs sysadmin. THIS IS BAD, btw.
– During initial setup of replication, you’re using a UNC file path to store replication data (the repldata folder).
– The windows replication service account needs read/write permissions to this share.
– Databases on subscriber already exist, and have the same names as the source databases.
– The 2 aforementioned replication accounts have dbowner privileges on the source and destination databases.
– The 2 aforementioned replication accounts also have dbowner privileges on the distribution database (under system databases).
– The firewall allows a connection between the publisher and subscriber machines.
– The publisher and the subscriber must be able to communicate through a windows hostname. IP addresses are not allowed.
– Grant everyone modify permissions to the folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\130\COM (130=SQL 2016, 120=SQL 2014, 110=SQL 2012, etc)
– Run ‘sp_configure ‘max text repl size’, -1; Go; RECONFIGURE; GO’ on both servers to allow LOB data to be replicated.
– Be sure all databases are owned by the configured SA account.

What this script does:
– Sets up the publication as a transactional PULL publication. Cuz that’s how we use it at DKD. Additions are welcome.
– Loops through the tables, views, procedures and functions and adds each article to the publication.
– Adds the user accounts to the publication list.
– Starts the initialization snapshot agent.
– Writes out commands to run on the subscriber to finish setup.

Warnings:

What works for me may not work for you. You should add your own publication and subscription, and script it out.
Then compare the script to the script created by this procedure (with @execute = 0) to see if this will do what you want it to do.
Many of the things in here could be made into options.

Cool things to future me to do for a future version:
– Set up the configuration as extended properties on the database.
