Users must have Replication Server login accounts to execute Replication Server commands. An account consists of a login name and a password, both of which must be supplied to connect to a Replication Server.
create user – adds a new user to a Replication Server.
alter user – changes a user’s password.
drop user – drops a Replication Server user account.
grant – assigns permissions.
revoke – revokes permissions.
Use the set proxy command to switch to another user login account with different permissions.
Each permission allows a user to execute a set of commands. For example, to create a replication definition, a user must have create object permission. A user with “sa” permission can execute any Replication Server command.
