  • What value you have for Immediate_sync  on your publication?

    if false then for adding use sp_Addarticle  and then use sp_Addsubscription and use @sync_type ='replication support only'.

    "Assumes that the Subscriber already has the schema and initial data for published tables."

    While dropping articles u not invalidating snapshot there should not be snapshot generation after dropping articles.

    Can you provide scripts for add view/stored procedure without generating a snapshot using T-SQL

    >>add/drop view/stored procedure without generating a snapshot using T-SQL,


    You can use force invalidate option to void the snapshot while adding the article and re-initialize the subscriber with new snapshot. Even if you don't regenerate the snapshot, you need to have a new snapshot to reinitialize the subscriber. After adding an article to a publication, you must create a new snapshot for the publication (and all partitions if it is a merge publication with parameterized filters).


    [ @force_invalidate_snapshot = ] force_invalidate_snapshot Acknowledges that the action taken by this stored procedure may invalidate an existing snapshot. force_invalidate_snapshot is a bit, with a default of 0.

    0 specifies that changes to the article do not cause the snapshot to be invalid. If the stored procedure detects that the change does require a new snapshot, an error occurs and no changes are made.

    1 specifies that changes to the article may cause the snapshot to be invalid, and if there are existing subscriptions that would require a new snapshot, gives permission for the existing snapshot to be marked as obsolete and a new snapshot generated.
