I am trying to remote subscription on SQL Server 2005 to a SQL Server 2008 publisher using a SQL Server 2008 distributor. Both the publisher and distributor are on a different domain but are connected through a VPN.

The subscription is never getting initialized as a result. The full 2 errors are: The schema script '' could not be propagated to the
subscriber. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL-2147201001)
and
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'drop'. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 156)

Well if you use features only availiable in sql2008 on the database. This doesn't work. You need the same version for subscriber.

And the comment I refer to begins with: "quote: 'ALTER TABLE SET LOCK ESCALATION should not be used if schema change replication ..."
