-- This script uses sqlcmd scripting variables. They are in the form -- $(MyVariable). For information about how to use scripting variables -- on the command line and in SQL Server Management Studio, see the -- "Executing Replication Scripts" section in the topic -- "Programming Replication Using System Stored Procedures". DECLARE @publicationDB AS sysname; DECLARE @publication AS sysname; SET @publicationDB = N'AdventureWorks'; SET @publication = N'AdvWorksProductTran'; USE [AdventureWorksReplica] -- Execute at the Subscriber to reinitialize the pull subscription. EXEC sp_reinitpullsubscription @publisher = $(PubServer), @publisher_db = @publicationDB, @publication = @publication; GO -- Start the Distribution Agent.
Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role or the db_owner fixed database role can execute sp_reinitpullsubscription.
