recently all my PULL subscriptions have this message in the synchronization status. :-
The process could not connect to Distributor 'DISTRIBUTIONDB'
This is only happening with the PULL subscriptions. I have attempted to reinitialize with a new snapshot, but the message remains.
when attempting to look at the history it suggests that the agent job doesn't exist. So I removed it and recreated the subscription and the job from a T-SQL script. monitor now suggests that the job doesn't exist but when run the T-sql sp_addpullsubscription code on the subscriber i get
Msg 21002, Level 11, State 1, Procedure sp_addpullsubscription_agent, Line 250 The Distribution Agent for this subscription already exists (YAZOO-MLT-Statics-KINKS-MLT-Replicated-94CD221C-4F8E-4732-8738-A6101E9D571B).
