SQL 2005 error: Replication-Replication Distribution Subsystem: agent (null) failed.

I'm getting this, after upgrading from 2000 to 2005.

Replication-Replication Distribution Subsystem: agent (null) failed.
The subscription to publication '(null)' has expired or does not
exist.

The only suggestions I've seen are to dump all subscriptions. Since
we have several dozen publications to several servers, is there a
decent way to script it all out, if that's the only suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

Drill down on the publication in the replication folder\Local Publications.
Right click on it and select Generate Scripts.

I get the similar error message, can this be explained in terms of its
possible causes?
My observation is my transactional replication goes well without any
problems, but I keep on finding this annoying error in the sql server log.
Any thoughts on this issue is highly appreciated.

Jeff, we wound up contacting Microsoft about it. They had us run a
trace on the server (turning on the "errors and warnings"), determined
that it had something to do with subscriptions to a particular
published database, then we removed and recreated them.

We also, once we'd scripted and removed the subscriptions, we ran
sp_removedbrepl ication. Hope this helps.

Hello VS 2005 World... I am making my way through VS 2005 Beta 1 and I'm having a problem getting ASP.NET project to start in IIS running on an XP development machine. I build a sample project in VS 2005 and it runs fine through the debugger. Then I try using the new Publish Web Site feature to publish the application to IIS at C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\my_project. It looks like everything gets published correctly to a virtual directory.

Visual C#.NET 2005 express has some issues, unlike VB.NET 2005 has none of them: The most annoying one is: For example if there's a coding error, it must be reported at the buttom of the screen in "error list" "REAL-TIME". At least, that was like that in VB.NET 2005 express. But in Visual C# .NET 2005 you won't be able to aware of coding errors till you press "play" build & run button.

Hello all, Just wanted to get some clarification on something. I was setting out to create a login page for people to login and then be able to access certain aspects of the website. Instead of doing what I usually do which is store the username password in a db table then compare what the user enters from the text boxes to what's in the db, I thought I would try the login components from the toolbox.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
