Gets the information about a replication distributor for a given SQL Server instance.
This function locates and enumerates distributor information for a given SQL Server instance.
All replication commands need SQL Server Management Studio installed and are therefore currently not supported. Have a look at this issue to get more information: https://github.com/dataplat/dbatools/issues/7428

The target SQL Server instance or instances.
Login to the target instance using alternative credentials. Accepts PowerShell credentials (Get-Credential).
Windows Authentication, SQL Server Authentication, Active Directory - Password, and Active Directory - Integrated are all supported.
For MFA support, please use Connect-DbaInstance.
By default, when something goes wrong we try to catch it, interpret it and give you a friendly warning message.
This avoids overwhelming you with "sea of red" exceptions, but is inconvenient because it basically disables advanced scripting.
Using this switch turns this "nice by default" feature off and enables you to catch exceptions with your own try/catch.
