KB3016165 - FIX: Arithmetic overflow error occurs when you add manually initialized subscriptions for publication in SQL Server

Applies to: SQL Server 2012 DeveloperSQL Server 2012 EnterpriseSQL Server 2012 Standard


Assume that you use Microsoft SQL Server 2012 or SQL Server 2014 transactional replication. You try to add subscriptions with @sync_type specified as 'replication support only', 'initialize with backup', or 'initialize from lsn' for publication, and the publication id is greater than 99. In this situation, you receive the following error message:
Msg 8115, Level 16, State 2, Procedure sp_MSsetupnosyncsubscriptionwithlsn, Line 237
Arithmetic overflow error converting expression to data type nvarchar.


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