FIX: The data on the publisher does not match the data on the subscriber when you synchronize a SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition subscriber with a SQL Server 2000 "merge replication" publisher

Bug #: 50002007 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2000 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2000 fix release.
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
Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft SQL Server 2000, you configure a "merge replication" publisher. Then, you configure a subscriber in SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition. Next, you insert some records into an article on the subscriber, and then you lose the network connectivity. In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
28037 SSCE_M_HTTPSENDREQUESTFAILED A request to send data to the computer running IIS has failed. For more information, see HRESULT.

28001 SSCE_M_INTERNETREADERROR Internal error: A read operation from the device or the IIS server returned an incorrect number of bytes while trying to process a synchronization request.
After you reconnect, you synchronize the data, and then you update the records that you previously inserted on the subscriber. When you synchronize the data again, you find that the data on the publisher does not match the data on the subscriber.

Note This problem does not occur if you configure the merge replication in SQL Server 2005.
This problem occurs because the lineage for the row that is being updated is not correctly synchronized between the publisher and the subscriber.
