I have restored a merge-replication database after a new install of SQL Server 2008 R2 and now synchronization is not working. When I go to Publication Properties > Publication Access List, I get the error #20026 - The publication "bldatamaster"
does not exist. Yet the title of the dialog box itself is "Publication Properties - bldatamaster" I don't understand how I'm looking right at the properties of the publication bldatamaster, but the system is saying this publication does not exist. I
get the same message when I hit "View Synchronization Status" on a subscriber in the Replication tree on the object explorer.
I can see all the articles and all the subscriptions from when synchronization was working in our previous install (which was on the same server), but I cannot get it to work
I'm sure this is my error - I'm in way over my head here as our developers have vanished and we're down until I fix this.
