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

In Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 4 (SP4), you create a merge replication for tables that have computed columns or columns of the timestamp data type. When you try to synchronize the subscriptions, you receive the following error message during the snapshot process in the Replication Merge Agent:
The process could not log conflict information.
(Source: Merge Replication Provider (Agent); Error number: -2147200992)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Error converting data type varchar to datetime.
If you ignore the error message, and you then continue the synchronization, the Replication Merge Agent soon fails when the Replication Merge Agent connects to the subscriber to enumerate changes. The following error message is logged in the Mergelog.txt file:
Processing article 'TableName'
The process could not enumerate changes at the 'Subscriber'.
Percent Complete: 0
The process could not enumerate changes at the 'Subscriber'.
Percent Complete: 0
Category:NULL
Source: Merge Replication Provider
Number: -2147200999
Message: The process could not enumerate changes at the 'Subscriber'.
Percent Complete: 0
Category: SQLSERVER
Source: Servername
Number: 0
Message: Restricted data type attribute violation Disconnecting from Subscriber 'Servername'
Note The "Restricted data type attribute violation" error message is an ODBC error message.
