SID explained

What is a SID? Is it a partition or part of a global database?

A SID is a database identifier. Each database instance has a name. The SID is that name. On one server, you can run multiple instances, but each needs its own name.

In some configurations, such as those required to run Advanced Replication, each database instance in your environment has to have a globally unique name, even if the instances run on different servers.
