  • You are having a problem with merge replication.  I am suspecting a permissions issue somewhere along the line.

    Best thing to do is to run the merge agent from the console and see where it is failing and what error messages are being generated.

    Open up replication monitor, expand your publication, right click on the problem subscription, select view details, Action, Merge Agent Properties, click on Steps, Run Agent, Click on Edit, and then copy the string you see in the command window. On your publisher open up a command prompt and go to

    c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\COM and then type replmerg.exe and then paste the command that you obtained from above. Then click enter to run this. Post back the last 20 or so lines from the command window here.
