SQL Server 2005 Tidbit 005

Happy SQL People

SQL Server 2005 Tidbit number FIVE..

This tidbit comes as a result of a question an attendee from one one of our live TechNet Events emailed me.

"Can 2005 Express be part of the multiserver environment?  In SQL Server 2000, target servers running MSDE cannot be enlisted.”

According to the SQL Server 2005 Express information page (http://www.microsoft.com/sql/express/default.mspx), SQL Express can participate as a Transactional and Merge Replication Subscriber, as a client for the SQL Service Broker, and will support distributed transactions.  Sweet!
