  • Could you show what messages you have for distribution agent? I believe distribution agent has some problem. Maybe stuck or subscription not reinitialized etc. Any pending cmds on that distribution agent? You need to remember that when trace token are inserted and when there are any pending commands in the queue waiting to be delivered to Subscriber, trace tokens will wait as well. It is transactional replication and trace tokens are "delivered" in the same way as normal transactions, in sequence.

  • Hi Bartosz

    I remove all subscription, publication and distribution database which I didn't do. Initially what I did was there was a replication. I removed all and try to reconfigure.  Then except "distribution" db"  I remove subscribers and publishers. But after configured  replication didn't work well.

    I remove all inculding  distribution DB.

    Now its working .

    Many thanks
