Putting The Distribution Database In An Availability Group

Sourabh Agarwal announces that you will soon be able to put the distribution database into an Availability Group:

Many enterprise customers have asked the capability to combine the usage of SQL Server replication and Always On, such that they can place replication distribution databases within an Always On AG to achieve high availability for their distribution databases, with the expectation that after doing so and when AG failover happens, SQL Server replication will continue functioning seamlessly and correctly. While the Replication publication and subscription databases can be configured to use Availability Groups, this support was lacking for the replication Distribution Databases.

SQL Server engineering team is excited to announce the new enhancement around the configuration of Replication Distribution Database in an Availability Group. This feature enhancement would be available with SQL Server 2017 CU6 and will be ported to SQL Server 2016 in a subsequent CU for SP2.

For those people using merge replication, it won’t be supported in this release.
