Transactional Replication And SQL On Linux

Phil Grayson shows a way to get transactional replication working on Linux:

Microsoft have stated that transactional replication isn’t supported on Linux and we’re not sure if they intend to in the future. This means that if you try to add the server to a publisher, you get the following message. So you can’t use the GUI and it also means that you can’t use pull as the necessary files won’t be there.

Despite that warning, there is a way to set up a push subscription; click through for that way.

      I just fixed the link; Phil shows the way to do it. You have to use T-SQL statements rather than the GUI and because it’s not officially supported, you can’t do pull subscription. But it’s possible to get a push subscription working.
