We are getting ready to update SQL Server Replication Management Pack. This release will bring support for older SQL Server versions (2012, 2014, 2016) into the version agnostic MP. That is, going forward just like SQL Server MP, we will have version-agnostic Replication MP that can monitor all SQL Server versions in support. This is the last MP in SQL Server MP family to move to full version-agnostic mode.
