SYMPTOMS

When you synchronize a subscriber of a merge publication in SQL Server 2000, you may notice that the data in the subscriber differs from the data in the publisher. This problem occurs when lots of data and metadata must be transferred to the subscriber.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of behavior that occurs when many generations must be sent to the subscriber. The merge agent sends data and metadata in batches. In this scenario, the first batch sends data for all generations. However, the first batch only sends metadata for only the first batch. Therefore, no metadata is sent for some of the generations.

RESOLUTION

The installer does not install this hotfix correctly on x64-based systems. This installation issue occurs when the following conditions are true:
  • The system uses the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) AMD64 processor architecture or the Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (EM64T) processor architecture.

    Note This issue does not occur on systems that use the Intel Itanium processor architecture.
  • The system is running a 64-bit version of the Microsoft Windows Server operating system.
  • The system is running a 32-bit version of SQL Server 2000.
We have corrected this installation issue in later builds of SQL Server 2000, starting with version 8.00.2244. When a customer who is running SQL Server 2000 on an x64-based system requests this hotfix, we will provide a build that includes this hotfix and that can be installed correctly on an x64-based system. The build that we provide will be version 8.00.2244 or a later version.
