Can not delet a publication in SQL server 2005: The publication does not exist [SQL server error: 20

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
 

Hi, everyone,

I am new in SQL server 2005. I had setup SQL server 2005 P2P replication. Somehow it did not work one of two way replication. I tried to delete the publication. However I could not do it. have the same problem. When I tried to delete the publication, I got the publication " " does not exist.[SQL server error: 20026]. I tried to use sp_droppublication, it gave me error "the database is not enabled for publication". Nevertheless, I can see the publication in MS SQL Management Studio and Publication monitor with OK status. I could not find the distribution database either.

 

Could you anyone has ideas to delete this publication? I am sorry I am not a programmer. Please give me more detail explanation if you can. Thanks.

"[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied error for a sched

  
Hi Guys, The subject of this question is the error which I am receiving when running a scheduled job also this is an error which we get at a random intervals and the frequency would be once or twice in a month. I have been through several posts and didn't concluded anything out of it. At the time when we receive this error the memory usage of the database was normal with free resources available and also the network was stable without issues. Our Sql database is in cluster mode with named instance. Can anyone share some information on this, I know this is not the right forum with the error message I have posted but am sure some one might have face the same problem when running some ETL jobs. Source and target both are sql server and the error message is generated in the validation phase of the connection manager connecting to target database. SSIS 2005 SP2 64 bit environmentRaju

SQL Server 2005 x64: Intermittent "Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 10."

  
Hi, We are experiencing intermittent authentication errors "Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 10" on a customer's production server. This is a new server that has just been rolled out in the past several months. Rebooting the server appears to make the problem go away. We are using SQL authentication from a separate server that is running IIS. The application always uses the same username and password to connect.

Hi This has me somewhat perplexed!

RMO Error: The subscription to publication has expired or does not exist

  
Hello,   I have seen several posts on this issue but none that seem to be answered or resolved. I note two posts on my browser that MS has identified as being similar to my problem. Again, none have been answered. (???? Microsoft ????)   I am having the error: "The subscription to the publication has expired or does not exist" - when I try to do a PullMerge subscription from the client. The subscription was created using RMO objects in a program. I am using stright Synchronization - not web. The resulting subscription is viewable in the SQL Server Management Studio and all the properties appear correct. No matter what, the subscription created through a program always fails with the above error.   IIf I create a subscription to the same publication using the SQL Server Management Studio, however, the PullMerge works. Both subscriptions look the same but both behave very differently. Obviously this is a security difference between the subscription made by the Mangement Studio and one made through a running application.   Can anyone shed some light on what these differences are? I read somewhere that the subscriptions and publications made through the Management Studio had a different security certificate than those through a program. What they were are not clear.   Most impotantly, how do I fix this problem?????     Code: ==============================     serverConn.C

Error during installation of SQL Server 2005 when typing the domain account

  

I am installing SQL Server 2005 on a server (Windows Server Enterprise Edition 2003 SP2) that is not domain controller and on the screen "Service Account" I checked the box "Customize for each service account" and typed a domain account (it has permission to "logon as a service"), its password and domain, and when I click the "Next" button, I am getting the error below:

"SQL Server Setup could not validate the service accounts. Either the service accounts have not been provided for all of the services being installed, or the specified username or password is incorrect. For each service, specify a valid username, password, and domain, or specify a built-in system account. "

What's happening? Why is this error occurring? What I have to do for this error does not occur?

Thanks for any help me to solve this problem

(Note : Excuse me because my English isn't very good !)
