PullSubscription.Remove Method

Removes the pull subscription.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Replication
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Rmo (in microsoft.sqlserver.rmo.dll)

public void Remove ()
public void Remove ()
public function Remove ()

After removing the subscription at the Subscriber, you must call RemovePullSubscription or RemovePullSubscription to remove the subscription registration at the Publisher.

The Remove method can only be called by members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Publisher or by members of the db_owner fixed database role on the subscription database.

Calling Remove is equivalent to executing sp_droppullsubscription (Transact-SQL) or sp_dropmergepullsubscription (Transact-SQL).

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the .NET Framework.


This example deletes a pull subscription to a transactional publication.

// Define the Publisher, publication, and databases.
string publicationName = "AdvWorksProductTran";
string publisherName = publisherInstance;
string subscriberName = subscriberInstance;
string subscriptionDbName = "AdventureWorksReplica";
string publicationDbName = "AdventureWorks";

//Create connections to the Publisher and Subscriber.
ServerConnection subscriberConn = new ServerConnection(subscriberName);
ServerConnection publisherConn = new ServerConnection(publisherName);

// Create the objects that we need.
TransPublication publication;
TransPullSubscription subscription;

try
{
    // Connect to the Subscriber.
    subscriberConn.Connect();

    // Define the pull subscription.
    subscription = new TransPullSubscription();
    subscription.ConnectionContext = subscriberConn;
    subscription.PublisherName = publisherName;
    subscription.PublicationName = publicationName;
    subscription.PublicationDBName = publicationDbName;
    subscription.DatabaseName = subscriptionDbName;

    // Define the publication.
    publication = new TransPublication();
    publication.Name = publicationName;
    publication.DatabaseName = publicationDbName;
    publication.ConnectionContext = publisherConn;

    // Delete the pull subscription, if it exists.
    if (subscription.IsExistingObject)
    {
        if (publication.LoadProperties())
        {
            // Remove the pull subscription registration at the Publisher.
            publication.RemovePullSubscription(subscriberName, subscriptionDbName);
        }
        else
        {
            // Do something here if the publication does not exist.
            throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
                "The publication '{0}' does not exist on {1}.",
                publicationName, publisherName));
        }
        // Delete the pull subscription at the Subscriber.
        subscription.Remove();
    }
    else
    {
        throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
            "The subscription to {0} does not exist on {1}",
            publicationName, subscriberName));
    }
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    // Implement the appropriate error handling here.
    throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
        "The subscription to {0} could not be deleted.", publicationName), ex);
}
finally
{
    subscriberConn.Disconnect();
    publisherConn.Disconnect();
}

This example deletes a pull subscription to a merge publication.

// Define the Publisher, publication, and databases.
string publicationName = "AdvWorksSalesOrdersMerge";
string publisherName = publisherInstance;
string subscriberName = subscriberInstance;
string subscriptionDbName = "AdventureWorksReplica";
string publicationDbName = "AdventureWorks";

//Create connections to the Publisher and Subscriber.
ServerConnection subscriberConn = new ServerConnection(subscriberName);
ServerConnection publisherConn = new ServerConnection(publisherName);

// Create the objects that we need.
MergePublication publication;
MergePullSubscription subscription;

try
{
    // Connect to the Subscriber.
    subscriberConn.Connect();

    // Define the pull subscription.
    subscription = new MergePullSubscription();
    subscription.ConnectionContext = subscriberConn;
    subscription.PublisherName = publisherName;
    subscription.PublicationName = publicationName;
    subscription.PublicationDBName = publicationDbName;
    subscription.DatabaseName = subscriptionDbName;

    // Define the publication.
    publication = new MergePublication();
    publication.Name = publicationName;
    publication.DatabaseName = publicationDbName;
    publication.ConnectionContext = publisherConn;

    // Delete the pull subscription, if it exists.
    if (subscription.IsExistingObject)
    {
        // Delete the pull subscription at the Subscriber.
        subscription.Remove();

        if (publication.LoadProperties())
        {
            publication.RemovePullSubscription(subscriberName, subscriptionDbName);
        }
        else
        {
            // Do something here if the publication does not exist.
            throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
                "The publication '{0}' does not exist on {1}.",
                publicationName, publisherName));
        }
    }
    else
    {
        throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
            "The subscription to {0} does not exist on {1}",
            publicationName, subscriberName));
    }
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
    // Implement the appropriate error handling here.
    throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
        "The subscription to {0} could not be deleted.", publicationName), ex);
}
finally
{
    subscriberConn.Disconnect();
    publisherConn.Disconnect();
}
