I am trying to configure Distributor for transactional replication set up on SQL Server 2016 Enterprise Edition. But I get the following error:
SQL Server could not configure 'Server01' as a Distributor. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo) The server principal 'distributor_admin' already exists. Changed database context to 'master'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 15025)
Any help/direction to resolve this error would be highly appreciated.
