I'm try to upgrade SQL Server 2005 Evaluation with tuned up and worked merge replication.
- I'm insert disk with licensed SQL Server 2005 Enterprise, start installation - in process, indicate instance for installing, in list of options appears I see option "ugrade"
- All passes fine and go on:
After upgarde I'm get completely broken merge replication!
Moreover, such feeling that certain strange troubles with SQL Agent:
all points context menu in Replication Monotor - disabled and if I try to start replication manually through jobs - too failed - with some error "agent shutdown" !
I'm try to build "clear" situation: install in Virtual PC Windows 2003 Ent SP1, SQL 2005 Eval and setup my test replication and upgrade SQL Server to Enterprise version - and get same trouble too!!!
What the best way to uprade my evaluations sql servers with replication to licensed version SQL Ent?

I've moved this thread to the replication forum, where you're more likely to get an answer.

What error message did you observe when you say merge replication is broken? Remember after you upgrade to SQL Server 2005 RTM (either from SQL 2000 or SQL 2005 Eval), you need to re-run snapshot job for merge replication upgrade to complete, from then you can run normal merge agent job, otherwise, you will hit error like "You must rerun snapshot because current snapshot files are obsolete.". Let me know if you're seeing a different error.
