Merge replication fails with HTTP header information corrupted or it is missing in the transport message.

Hello,

I am migrating my existing system (merge replication application) from MSSQL 2K and SQLCE 2.0 on a single server to a MSSQL 2K8 R2 and SQLCE 3.5 on a two server setup (IIS on one box and SQL on another).

My issue is that I keep getting the following error in my merge replication log (i changed the error logging level to 3):

Hr=80070585 ERR:Failure reading Transport version header 0

Also, a few days ago the merge replication would work but it would take about 1,5 hour to complete, whereas the existing (old) system completes it in about 7-8 minutes.

Can you please help?

Thank you for your help.

I have never seen the error before. But on googling, I found something related. You can ask if the user got any reply in the post:-

Hi TempDBA,

Thank you for your prompt response...

I found the root of my problem...For some silly reason, I had not changed the Merge Replication Internet URL to point to the (new) SQLCE 3.5 instance. It was pointing to the (old) SQLCE 2.0 instance, hence it was not working! :(

I found out that I used the wrong URL...I was trying to Merge Replicate my SQLCE 3.5 client database to an SQLCE 2.0 instance on my SQL server. :(
