BUG #: 57468 (SQLBUG_70)
When you use the SQL Server Authentication connection method for the replication agent, the output parameter also prints the user name and password for the replication connection in the output text file. For example, you may see the following text in the output text file:
Subscriber security mode: 0, login name: sa, password: password.					
To work around this problem, use Windows NT Authentication connection instead of SQL Authentication for the particular replication agent. To connect using Windows NT Authentication, set the replication parameters as follows:
  • DistributorSecurityMode 1
  • SubscriberSecurityMode 1
  • PublisherSecurityMode 1
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 3 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
