How to: Synchronize a Push Subscription (SQL Server Management Studio)

Subscriptions are synchronized by the Distribution Agent (for snapshot and transactional replication) or the Merge Agent (for merge replication). Agents can:

  • Run continuously

  • Run on demand

  • Run on a schedule

For more information about specifying synchronization schedules, see How to: Specify Synchronization Schedules (SQL Server Management Studio).

Synchronize a subscription on demand from the Local Publications and Local Subscriptions folders in Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio and the All Subscriptions tab in Replication Monitor. Subscriptions to Oracle publications cannot be synchronized on demand from the Subscriber. For information about starting Replication Monitor, see How to: Start Replication Monitor (Replication Monitor).
