i was testing on a test serverA, I configured serverA as distributor, serverB as publisher with push snapshot replication to serverC.
Then I deleted everything, ( distributor on serverA, etc.) Now there's no distribution db on serverA, and Replication Monitor isn't there.
Finally I wanted to reconfigure everything, but when I specify to serverA as distributor, I get error:14234 the specified '@server' is invalid, valid values are retrieved by sp_helpserver.
Servers B and C are added to A as linked servers
