Hi Marimuthu,

Actually, you cannot replicate any of the system databases, including MSDB. Any attempt to do so fails with error 35249 "An attempt to add or join a system database, '%.*ls', to an availability group failed. Specify only user databases for this operation." And the rule evaluated triggers the error and prevents the action on any database whose database_id is 1 (master), 2 (tempdb), 3 (model) or 4 (msdb.)

Hi Nacho,

I recently attended a session from a SQL Server MVP about SQL 2014 and he told me adding the MSDB to an AlwaysOn Group should be possible from SQL 2014. I had some contact with him about this matter and he told me this was probably in a CTP version of SQL 2014 because it is indeed not possible anymore in SQL 2014 today.

So you are right Nacho, thanks for letting us know, I have edited the blog post.
