When trying to configure a publication I get the below error.
SQL Server could not configure 'MyServer' as a Distributor. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo) The server 'MyServer' is already defined as a Distributor. To reconfigure the server as a Distributor, you must first uninstall the exisiting Distributor. Use the stored procedure sp_dropdistributor, or use the Disable Publishing and Distribution Wizard. Changed database context to 'master'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 14099)
How can I tell if this is configured to be a distbitor...Becuase when I go back a few steps in the wizard tot the "Distbutor" step I tried use the option that says
"Use the following server sas the Distributor (Note: the server you select must arelady be configured as a a distbutor. )"
but when I select this option and try to add the MyServer I get the erorr:
'MyServer' is not configured as a Distributor. Select a server that is configured as a Distributor.
The server is not currently a distrutor (that I know of) and the wizard seems to think it is and it isn't. Am I crazy???
EDIT: Mirroing is setup on the database and server that I am trying to configure. Does that make a difference?
