Merge Replication - Error for Snapshot Agent

Merge Replication - Error for Snapshot Agent

Post by Steve Hendrick » Sun, 26 May 2002 03:42:15

I am running the Enterprise Manager wizrds to set up Merge Replication
in a SQL 7.0 environment.  Two oddities have come up that are preventing

1) The wizard is not adding the RowGuid column to each table involved in
a published article.

2) The Snapshot Agent is failing with an error saying that the index
already exists for this table.  The index is for the RowGuid column just
added by the wizard.

We are publishing close to a thousand articles.  Am I running into a
limitation of EM?  Does anyone have a suggestion on how to proceed?

1. SQL Error -- Snapshot Agent in Merge Replication


I have a multiple subscriber to single piblisher internet based replication

The initial replication works fine (usually). I have 2 problems:
1. After the initial subscription, the next update destroys data changes
made at the subscriber and re-downloads the schema.

2. After a few (between 5 - 20) replications (from different subscribers) I
get the following error: Can not retrieve file ... bookings.sch from ftp
site. (Subscriber)

The second error is of great concern, as NO subscriber can then retrieve
information and attempting to retrieve agent status causes the Publisher
side error. The Publisher has only 1 publication, and is running SP1.
