sp_reinitpullsubscription is used in transactional replication.

sp_reinitpullsubscription can be called from the Subscriber to reinitialize the subscription, during the next run of the Distribution Agent. Note that the subscriptions of non_immediate_sync type publications cannot be reinitialized from the Subscriber.

You can reinitialize a pull subscription by either executing sp_reinitpullsubscription at the Subscriber or sp_reinitsubscription at the Publisher.


Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role or the db_owner fixed database role can execute sp_reinitpullsubscription.
