It doesn't sound like snapshot replication is your best choice here.

comment renaming a sql server with installed named instances
Did you rename the server and/or the instance name? So in other words, say you had OldServerName\OldInstanceName. Is it now NewServerName\OldInstanceName or NewServerName\NewInstanceName? It isn't clear to me what was changed.

Also, what is your recovery model? If full, are you doing transaction log backups?

Check your SQL Server error log and the event log as well. Look for errors around the same time this all happened.

select name, log_reuse_wait_desc from sys.databases where name = 'temp'; What is the output from that query? This is also probably not the case, but do you have available disk space on the drive that your transaction log file lives?

comment SQL Server transaction log file refuses to grow
How do you know the log file is refusing to grow? What indication do you have of this? What makes you think that the log file needs to grow?
