But when i going to add then SQL Server stops responding and it gets hanged ,even after 15 hours articles were not added.Is there any solution to add the so much articles in replication so that it can work smoothly.

  • You are probably encountering blocking.

    A scripted solution would likely work better for you.

    Try to create a publication which has one table, one stored procedure, one function and one view. Then using what you script out as a template, create a publication which contains everything.

    Another option for you is to script out all of your objects you wish to replicate and then run it on an empty database. Then create the publication there, script it out and then run the publication script in the actual database.

    This might be a SQL Server problem, could you please check your SQL Server error log or Event Viewer to see if any error message there? If so, share the error log with us via onedrive so we can better understand it. Do mask sensitive data before uploading.

    Also, it might be an issue with SSMS, try to add articles with SSMS 17.3 see if it helps.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.

  • There is also option at the end of New Publication Wizard that instead of creating Publication you can script it out. 

    Agree with Hilary here that scripts will work much better and not try to add all in one go. We noticed that on very busy systems especially when adding/dropping subscriptions for ALL articles. We ended up dropping articles one by one otherwise we get locked.
