Delete SQL replikation

Hello

My server "SVR1" runs a SQL Server with a transactional publication. On the second server "SVR2" I had a subscription.
Now the SVR2 does not exist anymore and I want to delete the replication on SVR1. (in the SQL Management Studio, the subscription is still visible)

But if I want to delete the SVR2-subscription on the SVR1, I get the error message 20032 "Could not delete the subscription at Subscriber 'SVR2' in database 'ICSDB'."

It can not connect to the SVR2 anymore and this gives the problem of deleting this subscription.

I also tryed:
exec sp_dropsubscription @publication = N'ICSDB_Publication', @article = N'all', @subscriber = N'all', @destination_db = N'ICSDB'
GO
-> it gives me the same error message.

How can I dlete this subscription (and afterwards also the publication)

Thanks for your help

Eric

I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows Server 2008R2

Right click on the publication, go to properties then to subscriptions. Click Delete. This is the EM way. For the QA way, generate the delete statement from EM.


For future use, I was having the same problems described above - but I also had database snapshots on the database that I was trying to remove replication from but that was not mentioned anywhere in the error messages.

Once I removed my database snapshots, the following script cleans things up well:

Example came from here:  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms188411.aspx
DECLARE @distributionDB AS sysname;
DECLARE @publisher AS sysname;
DECLARE @publicationDB as sysname;
SET @distributionDB = N'distribution';
SET @publisher = N'S-ESN-SQL1\SQL1';
SET @publicationDB = N'AdventureWorks2008R2';

-- Disable the publication database.
USE [AdventureWorks2008R2]
EXEC sp_removedbreplication @publicationDB;

-- Remove the registration of the local Publisher at the Distributor.
USE master
EXEC sp_dropdistpublisher @publisher;

-- Delete the distribution database.
EXEC sp_dropdistributiondb @distributionDB;

-- Remove the local server as a Distributor.
EXEC sp_dropdistributor;
GO
