Replication - Between 2005 and 2008

Using a SQL Server 2005 or SQL Server 2008 Distributor with a Publisher Running SQL Server 2000

SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 can be used as a remote Distributor for Publishers that are running SQL Server 2000. To change agent properties in this scenario, execute the following stored procedures at the Distributor. These procedures let you change properties that were introduced in SQL Server 2005:
If you have a Publisher and Distributor that are running SQL Server 2000, you can change the credentials under which agents make connections by using sp_changedistpublisher and sp_changesubscriber. However, if you upgrade the Distributor to SQL Server 2008, these procedures cannot be used to change the credentials that are used in existing agent jobs. The procedures do affect agent jobs that are created after the procedure is called. To change the credentials for existing agent jobs, call one of the four procedures listed previously.

IMP :-

SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005 can both participate in replication topologies with SQL Server 2008. For SQL Server 2000 the minimum version is Service Pack 3 (SP3). For SQL Server 2005 the minimum version is Service Pack 2 (SP2).
When you replicate between or among different versions of SQL Server, you are usually limited to the functionality of the earliest version used. For example, if you upgrade a Distributor to an instance of SQL Server 2008, but you have a Publisher that is running an instance of SQL Server 2005 and a Subscriber that is running an instance of SQL Server 2000, you are limited to the general functionality and replication functionality of SQL Server 2000.
NoteNote
Because the SQL Server on-disk storage format is the same in the 64-bit and 32-bit environments, a replication topology can combine server instances that run in a 32-bit environment and server instances that run in a 64-bit environment.
For all types of replication, the Distributor version must be no earlier than the Publisher version. (Frequently, the Distributor is the same instance as the Publisher.)
For transactional replication, a Subscriber to a transactional publication can be any version within two versions of the Publisher version. For example, a SQL Server 2000 Publisher can have SQL Server 2008 Subscribers, and a SQL Server 2008 Publisher can have SQL Server 2000 Subscribers.
For merge replication, a Subscriber to a merge publication can be any version no later than the Publisher version. For more information about compatibility for earlier versions, see "Compatibility Level for Merge Publications" later in this topic. For more information about replication features that are supported in the various editions of SQL Server, see Features Supported by the Editions of SQL Server "Denali".

.TUF file

TUF file is a Microsoft SQL Server Transaction Undo file. .TUF File contains the information regarding any modifications that were made as part of incomplete transactions at the time the backup was performed.

A transaction undo(.TUF) file is required if a database is loaded in read-only state. In this state, further transaction log backups may be applied.

if  .TUF file is deleted then log shipping restoration job will not work.
