Your only, option today is a good old friend of mine called transactional replication.You see, you can configure transactional replication and have the snapshot occur and all data in your current production system can be syncing live with your Azure SQL Database until it’s time to cutover which will make your cutover downtime as short as possible.Hi Can you confirm whether the following would work?Ive done a lot of searching the net but cannot find the answer Publisher = SQL 2014 Enterprise (on its own windows server) Distributor = SQL 2014 Standard (on its own windows server) Subscriber = SQL 2014 Standard (on its own windows server) I have Always On enabled on the Publisher(primary) - currently we have the distributor database on the Publisher so that when we fail over to our secondary server - replication stops working due to the distribution database being on the primary(publisher).After sending out an email to system admin group for help, I caught a hint from one of the system admin gurus, the issue is caused by the two servers (Server1 and Server2) are built from a same ghost image and thus they have the same MSDTC credentials.
For example, say and existing 50 GB to 500GB database?
This article provides a brief introduction to each of these models, while future articles will explore them in further detail.
They are: Each of these replication techniques serves a useful purpose and is well-suited to particular database scenarios.
This means that the two MS DTC will not be able to communicate with each other.
This problem typically occurs if one of the systems were cloned using unsupported cloning tools.
Unfortunately, with Azure SQL Database you are not able to take an existing SQL Server Backup and restore it on an Azure SQL Database server.
