Getting error in Transactional replication-The subscription does not exist

Lokesh Gonam 21 Reputation points

All of a sudden we got error in transactional replication stating The subscription does not exist.

and from then we started receiving the error The subscription to publication 'Report_Rep' has expired or does not exist.

Let me know how this can be troubleshooted.

    Did the subscription ever work?

    This error is almost always caused by something on the subscriber happened which removed the subscription, a restore or something.

    The best thing to do is try to reinit the subscription and rerun the snapshot agent. If that doesn't work. you will need to remove the subscription and recreate it on the publisher/subscriber.
