In mwerge replication, I create a publication in SQL 2008R2. Then, after generating a snapshot, I look at sync. status and see it has "started". This stays like this for hours. I go to stop it, and after confirming, get an error message saying it can't be stopped because it isn't running??
Any ideas please? do I need to stop and restart anything?
One thing, I have been creating a new publication, with a subscription, and then been deleting the publication without deleting the subscription first; could this be a factor?
