Replication subscription cannot be created because it exists already - but it doesn't
Posted on 2008-10-06
Despite refresh - and restarting services. Wizard insists that it exists and fails on the final step.
Why does it think it exists when there are no subscriptions visible in Enterprise manager?
Publisher exists, one publication.
The subscriber is also the distributor.
While the publication (snapshot) was being made, I deleted the original subscription because it was "transaction" not snapshot, and I thought that was probably not right.
All seemed ok, but now I cannot recreate a subscription of any type.
