Message Text

Subscriber '%s' subscription to article '%s' in publication '%s' has been reinitialized after a validation failure.

The data at the Subscriber was validated against the data at the Publisher, and the data did not match; therefore validation failed. When you specified that validation should be performed, you selected the option that a subscription should be reinitialized if validation failed. Reinitializing a subscription involves applying a new snapshot at the Subscriber. For more information about validation, see Validate Replicated Data.

Data at the Publisher and Subscriber will match after the new snapshot is applied at the Subscriber.
