We restored a database on a new server for a migration.
When attempting to set a subscription to a transnational publication, we get the error:
Can't drop the table because it is set for replication.
However, it is not being replicated to.
I have already set several push subscriptions up from this server that go to another so I don't want to completely wipe out all replication and rebuild everything.
I was wondering if there is a place that I could delete the piece of information that makes the article think it is still replicated to, so that I can add it back to a subscription
