I read an excellent article about copying the snapshot files for Transactional replication from Publisher to Subscriber and Apply them on subscriber.


But the focus of this article is directed to Transactional Replication.

I want to know how we can copy the snapshots from publisher, paste them on the subscriber and apply them on subscriber. I am using Merge Replication with push subscriber, Distributor and Publisher are on the same server.

Yes - With Merge we can copy the snapshot files to the Subscriber and apply the snapshot locally using the Merge Agent -AltSnapshotFolder parameter.
