Assume that you create a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) publication in Microsoft SQL Server 2014 or 2016. In this P2P publication, you publish a table whose schema name contains a period (.). When the distribution agent runs for this publication, it may fail with the following error:
This issue occurs because the system generated stored procedures are created incorrectly in P2P publication when the schema name of published table contains a period (.).
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
