Running SQL Server 2005 on Windows Server 2003. Can the subscriber database to my publication be renamed? Experimented with renaming a test database but replication failed. Thanks. Moderator Note: This is a user submitted question

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No, you can’t rename the subscriber database.

If you need to you can update the subscribers table in the distributor. You would also need to change the distribution job so that it has the new subscriber name.
