The threshold [%s:%s] for the publication [%s] has been set. One or more subscriptions to this publication have expired.


Replication lets you enable warnings for several conditions. This includes imminent subscription expiration. Subscriptions can expire if they are not synchronized within a specified retention period. For more information, see Subscription Expiration and Deactivation.

When that threshold is met or exceeded, a warning is displayed in Replication Monitor, and an event is written to the Windows event log.
