I'm trying to setup transaction replication between two domains under the same active directory. The publisher server is in a DR site domain and the remote distribution server is in the main site domain with the subscriber. Here are the machine names
Publisher Server : publisher1.drsite.mycompany.com
Distribution Server : distributor1.mainsite.mycompany.com
Subscriber Server : subscriber1.mainsite.mycompany.com
When I try to add
publisher1.drsite.mycompany.com to the remote distributor, it will not accept the FQDN and gives me the error below under Replication.Utilities
SQL Server replication requires the actual server name to make a connection to the server. Connections through a server alias, IP address, or any other alternate name are not supported. Specify the actual server name, "publisher1"
Does anyone experience the same problem and know how to solve it?
