One of my publications was dropped mistakenly. I restored it from the latest backup but now schema changes are not replicated to the subscribers.

What can I do to re-initialize/fix the publication?

  • Did you reinitialized publication after you restored it? Commented Mar 23, 2018 at 8:37
  • Can you explain restored it from the latest backup? How did you restore? How do you know the options are all same? Commented Mar 24, 2018 at 13:06

Did you mean afterwards you re-created the publication that you dropped? Afterwards, did you started back the snapshot agent?


You can restore a publication from the latest backup, but you then have to re-publish it. The snapshot agent has to be restarted.
