Replication Series, Part Three: Preparation

Continuing our series on replication, today we look at the steps to prepare for replication found within SQL Server.

The first step is to ensure that you have replication installed on each of the nodes that you wish to use replication.  One good way to determine if you have it installed is to run the Installed SQL Server features discovery report from the tools menu of the SQL Server Installation Center.  If you do not see the feature installed then you will need to install it.
