Merge Agent job failure intermittently RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Intermittently on of the servers, merge agent job is failing intermittently. Job runs every day once and some days it fails with below error.

    I am planning to enable verbose logging by specifying -Output C:\Temp\OUTPUTFILE.txt -Outputverboselevel 4

    let me know any other things I can test
