We are using SQL Server Merge replication and we have a need to setup a one way publication. We needed Data Manipulation Language (DML) changes on the publisher to get replicated to one of the subscribers, but not from that subscriber to the publisher. In this tip we look at how this can be done.
Here is what the environment looks like. DB1 is the publisher database and DB2 and DB3 are subscriber databases. We have Merge replication already configured on DB1 and DB2 and the data needs to go both ways. Now we need replicate data from DB1 to DB3 and not from DB3 to DB1.
Steps to Configure one way Merge SQL Server Replication
Let's create a new SQL Server Merge publication called OneWay. Right click on Local Publications and select New Publication.
