I'm struggling to verify whether an Azure Managed Instance of SQL Server can both subscribe to Transactional Replication, and Publish, at the same time - I've been googling like a demon and stackexchanging and all the rest of it and am getting wildly conflicting answers!!
Please please please - is this possible? If so, I'll work out how, but as the MI hasn't been put up yet I can't just try it and see...I can't submit the proposal to our change review board until I know how many servers I need, which I don't know until I know if I can do this...I'm stuck in a loop!!
Finally (and I'm happy to put this as a new question if needed...) when setting up the second publication from our other MI, there's no option to change the username for the publication - is this a usual expected limitation? For on Prem I'm used to being able to supply a different username for different publications...my colleague is concerned that having the same user means (and I quote): "that would be trying to use the same log reader agent on two different Publications (with different tables in them)? I'm concerned about conflicts and performance" - personally I don't see how having the same user will cause an issue though???
