Subscription data got deleted from distributor RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Looking for some help. Here’s our replication scenario –

    • We have a publisher servers P105 & P106, as  publishers with always on.
    • We have always-on distributor on servers Q103 and Q104.
    • And we also have a subscriber on server Z102.

    This afternoon, while we were doing publisher failover from P105 to P106, we noticed that the replication broke. We didn't see subscription existing on replication monitor, on viewing it on distributor.

    We also noticed in the following two distribution tables:

    - MSsubscriber_info

    - MSsubscriptions

    The records of subscription got wiped. Although the records in the Articles table are still present.

    The SQL version is 2017 in the distribution/ publisher. Subscription has SQL 2012 version. We are using transactional replication with push subscription.

    Is there a known issue around such scenario, can you tell how should we troubleshoot this further.

    Looking for your support.
