When the distribution database has been created and publishing has been enabled on the server, you can create and configure a publication. In SQL Server Management Studio, you start by locating the
Replication node under the publication server from which you want to publish data (the
DXD01\SQL2014DXD01 named instance in this example). Figure 43.34 shows the program item option when you right-click the
Replication node under what will be the publication server. As you can see, there are three options; one to create a new publication, one to create a new Oracle publication, and one to create a new subscription.
