Bug: #50002967 (SQL Hotfix) and Bug #: 50003316 (SQL Hotfix)

SQL Server 2008

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release.

SQL Server 2005

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • In Microsoft SQL Server 2000, you configure a transactional publication.
  • You use the SkipErrors Profile for data consistency errors agent profile for the Distribution Agent. You configure the Distribution Agent to skip error 20598.
  • You configure a pull subscription in Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or in Microsoft SQL Server 2008.
In this scenario, if a data consistency error occurs when you synchronize the subscription, the pull subscription job will fail, and you receive error 20598. However, you expect the Distribution Agent to skip error 20598 and to continue processing the remaining rows.

Additionally, in the SQL Server 2005 Distribution Agent log or in the SQL Server 2008 Distribution Agent log, you find error messages that resemble the following error messages:
Date Time Skipped 1 error(s) when applying transactions at the Subscriber.
Date Time The commit timestamp value is: 0x000036580000005f000100000000
Date Time sp_MSget_repl_commands timestamp value is: 0x0x000036580000005f000100000000
Date Time ErrorId = 8, SourceTypeId = 0 ErrorCode = '20598' ErrorText = 'The row was not found at the Subscriber when applying the replicated command.'
Date Time Agent message code 20046. Disconnecting from OLE DB Subscriber 'InstanceName'
Date Time Disconnecting from OLE DB Subscriber ‘Subscriber Name
Date Time Disconnecting from OLE DB Distributor 'Distributor Name'
Date Time Disconnecting from OLE DB Distributor 'Distributor Name'
Date Time Microsoft SQL Server Distribution Agent 9.00.3042.00
Date Time Copyright (c) 2005 Microsoft Corporation
Date Time Microsoft SQL Server Replication Agent: distrib
Date Time
Date Time The timestamps prepended to the output lines are expressed in terms of UTC time.
In the SQL Server 2000 Distribution Agent log, you find error messages that resemble the following error messages:
The commit timestamp value is: 0x0000048d000001eb000100000000
[Date Time ]Server.ides: if exists (select * from sysobjects where name = 'syspublications') if exists( select * from syspublications where repl_freq = 0) exec sp_replsetoriginator ?, ?
[Date Time ]Server.distribution: {call sp_MSadd_distribution_history(3255, 3, ?, ?, 0, 0, 0.00, 0x01, 1, ?, 0, 0x01, 0x00)}
ErrorId = 3135, SourceTypeId = 5
ErrorCode = '20598'
ErrorText = 'The row was not found at the Subscriber when applying the replicated command.'
[Date Time ]Server.distribution: {call sp_MSadd_repl_error(3135, 0, 5, ?, N'20598', ?)}

CAUSE

When the SQL Server 2005 Distribution Agent or the SQL Server 2008 Distribution Agent connects to the SQL Server 2000 Distribution Agent, the two agents call the sp_MSadd_repl_error stored procedure to log the error that was skipped on both sides. However, in SQL Server 2005 and in SQL Server 2008, the sp_MSadd_repl_error stored procedure has some additional parameters that are not included in the sp_MSadd_repl_error stored procedure in SQL Server 2000. Therefore, the call to the sp_MSadd_repl_error stored procedure fails.
