Replication Problem

I don't know if anyone can help with this, I've got replication running
between 2 SQLServer installations, the distributor is on the the same
server as subscriber. Replication is a once a day snapshot and all has
been working well until recently.

I needed to make a change to the replication and deleted and recreated
the subscription and now it doesn't work. The snapshot runs as before
but the subscription fails within a second or 2 with the following error:

"The process could not retrieve security information from the Subscriber
for Distributer 'MIServer'. The step failed."

The only thing I could think of was that somehow the password for the
'distributor_admin' login had become out of step. I've run
'sp_changedistributor_password' and the subscription still fails.

Any help would be appreciated.

TIA

It sounds rather similar to this KB article:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=312106

But you might get a better response in
microsoft.public.sqlserver.replication.
