PCI Compliance is failing due to "Microsoft SQL Server Database Link Crawling Command Execution"

There is no solution available however they recommend a Workaround:

Disable RPC_Out and xp_cmdshell for this issue.

We currently use Peer to Peer transactional replication, and the RPC Out is a server option on linked servers...

Would peer-to-peer replication still work if that is disabled as per the 'workaround' ?

  • As far as I know, disabling RPC would break a whole lot of things for replication. – Randolph West Aug 18 '16 at 1:16
