Message Text

The Merge Agent was unable to generate a partitioned snapshot for this subscription; either the Snapshot Agent failed to run or the location for the partitioned snapshot could not be accessed. The subscription will be initialized using a standard snapshot.

This error indicates one of the following problems occurred:

  • A failure while running a snapshot job through the snapshot control.

  • A failure while obtaining the location for the dynamic snapshot job.

Review the snapshot history tables on the distribution database, or use SQL Server Profiler to debug the snapshot process.
