Hi All

During the day when our internet traffic is high we reguarly get 'General Network Error - Check your network documentation' when our server in Asia performs a push replication to America.

Does anyone know why this is, and of any settings we can use, because after about 6 attempts it just gives up, and the syncronise has to be manually started again. Any timeout settings or retry settings we can set?

Replication newbie

Thanks

Yeah, there are some timeouts you can use...
In the distribution job add the following -QueryTimeOut 0
/*This will keep the replication up, and prevent the distribution from failing*/
You'll find a row in the distribution job which says : distribution -<option> <value>
or modify the default distribution profile in SQL Server (using EM).

I would also highly recommend looking at the bandwidth usage on your firewall.. If this is too high -- you're going to get problems...


The big question is why are you trying to syncronise between Asia and America via Snapshot replication ! (Bit of a problem usually better to use the pre-synced option...)

Hi

Snapshot replication? I am using transaction replication (push one way only). Not usre what you mean by pre-synced option though? :(. Thanks for the other infor though :)

Not sure what you mean by pre-synced option though?
Both sites have the data-already and you are not using the snapshot component within the system when sites get out of sync...


Its also possible to verify a batch of commands that have been sent down and get them applied to prevent big delays and increase the replication
have a look at the following other distribution agent profile vars:
-CommitBatchSize
-CommitBatchThreshold
-MaxDeliveredTransactions
