I'm running SQL 2000 SP4 publisher with approximately 15 MSDE 2000 pull subscribers.
A few of my users are having problems with replication. This is all done via VPN connections to our site (so they're not on our LAN.)
The merge agent fails with the error "The process could not query row data at the 'Publisher'."
After running Profiler, it appears that the this is the longest duration of anything run.
I can't find any real details on this stored procedure, so I'm not real sure what its doing. I'm also NOT a replication expert. I know enough to have gotten it running and its been working okay, but these problems have slowly been creeping up. We can normally get the synchronization to go through, but its frustrating to my users, and I may be facing a mutiny! Help! I'll be glad to provide any more details that anyone requests, and if anyone has any details on what this stored procedure is doing or how I can find out, that would be most appreciated!
