SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package
  • Whether you must restart the computer after you install the hotfix package
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package
  • Whether you must make any registry changes
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You create a merge publication that has parameterized filters in Microsoft SQL Server 2005. Then, you try to synchronize a subscriber. You use SQL Server Profiler to trace the instance of the publisher. In this scenario, the sp_MSinitDynamicSubscriber stored procedure is called more than one time by using the same parameters.

Note This problem may also occur when you use a SQL Server 2005 Everywhere subscriber.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because SQL Server calls the sp_MSinitDynamicSubscriber stored procedure to download all the initial data for each batch of generations.

Note If SQL Server 2005 and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) are running on different computers, you must apply the hotfix only to the computer that is running IIS. Additionally, you must install SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 1 on the computer that is running IIS before you apply this hotfix.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, create a partitioned snapshot for the merge publication that has parameterized filters. For more information about how to do this, visit the following Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Web site:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms151260.aspx
Note In merge replication, a snapshot includes only the data from a single partition. A partitioned snapshot is used to initialize subscriptions to publications that have parameterized filters. A partitioned snapshot is known as a dynamic snapshot in earlier versions of SQL Server.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
