SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by the hotfix package
  • The prerequisites for applying the hotfix package

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft SQL Server 2005, you create an immediate updating pull subscription for a transactional replication. Then, you query a table that is published in the transactional replication. In this scenario, you may receive inconsistent results. For example, data that was deleted in a previous transaction may be returned.

Additionally, transactional replication may fail, and you may receive error messages that resemble the following:
Message 1
Msg 20515, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_MSreplraiserror, Line 9
Updateable Subscriptions: Rows do not match between Publisher and Subscriber.
Run the Distribution Agent to refresh rows at the Subscriber.
Message 2
Msg 20512, Level 16, State 1, Procedure sp_MSreplraiserror, Line 8
Updateable Subscriptions: Rolling back transaction.
Message 3
Msg 3609, Level 16, State 1, Line 5
The transaction ended in the trigger. The batch has been aborted.

CAUSE

Whether this issue occurs depends on the timing of the agents that you are running. This issue occurs in SQL Server 2005 because of changes that are have been made in the loopback detection. These changes enable republishing of immediate updating replication scenarios. The changes propagate commands that are initiated from a Subscriber back to that Subscriber. The changes rely on Subscriber-side custom stored procedures to filter out duplicates.

This issue occurs in the following scenario:
  • You insert a row at a Subscriber.
  • You run the Logreader.exe file at the publisher. Then, the Publisher runs the INSERT command.
  • You delete this row at the Subscriber.
  • You run the Distribution Agent from the Publisher to the Subscriber.
The Distribution Agent will deliver the row that you inserted back to the Subscriber. This behavior occurs although the insertion was initiated by the Subscriber and although the row no longer exists on the Subscriber. When you run the Logreader.exe file later, the Distribution Agent delivers the DELETE command to the Subscriber. At this point, the Publisher and the Subscriber become synchronized again.
