TransSynchronizationAgent.DistributorPassword Property


Gets or sets the password that is used when connecting to the Distributor by using SQL Server Authentication.

 virtual property System::String ^ DistributorPassword { System::String ^ get(); void set(System::String ^ value); };
public virtual string DistributorPassword { get; set; }
member this.DistributorPassword : string with get, set
Public Overridable Property DistributorPassword As String

Property Value


The password used.



When possible, use Windows Authentication.

When it is possible, we recommend that users enter security credentials at run time. If you must store credentials, use the cryptographic services provided by the Microsoft .NET Framework.

For a push subscription, the Distribution Agent always connects to the Distributor locally by using Windows Integrated Authentication, and this property is ignored.

Stored passwords that are used to connect to the Distributor are never returned. Accessing this property will generate a PasswordWriteOnlyException exception.

This property is used only when DistributorSecurityMode is set to Standard.
