Hi,

We are currently having an issue with SQL replication, we have source database replication has been setup to a another database.
It is transaction replication, it was running with a AD account, recently the user has left the organization, and replication has been stopped.

Later on we fix the user issue by adding a service account on it, it has started the process and after few time the replication has been stopped. but Spotlight and SQL replication monitor show the replication happening.

But actual data table does not sync with new data from the source.

is anyone had the problem like this or any help to resolve this?
