Upgrading Environment from 2005 to 2008-R2 and the old env has merge replication running. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an environment that is running 2005. One publisher and two subscribers with merge push replication. I have a new environment identical but 2008-R2. I would like to get the two environments in sync so that all I have to do is flip a switch to move users to the new environment.

    I wanted to run merge replication from the old publisher to the new but it can't be done from 2005 to 2008. Then I set up a new publisher (transactional) on the old publishing server and a pull subscriber on the new and that seems to be working. Now my problem is that the publisher on the new server managing the merge replication out to the two new subscribers doesn't seem to recognize the updates coming in via the transactional replication.

    Does this make sense? Does anyone have any suggestions.
