I've been following the Microsoft Tutorial: Configure replication between two fully connected servers (transactional). Everything has gone "smooth", however the 'New Subscription Wizard' is stopping me from creating a subscriber due to compatibility issues between the publisher and subscriber.
The selected Subscriber does not satisfy the minimum version compatibility level of the selected publication. (New Subscription Wizard)
The publisher and distributor are on:
Microsoft SQL Server 2014 - 12.0.4100.1 (X64) Apr 20 2015 17:29:27 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.3 (Build 9600: ) (Hypervisor)
The subscriber is on:
Microsoft SQL Server 2016 (RTM) - 13.0.1601.5 (X64) Apr 29 2016 23:23:58 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard 6.3 (Build 9600: ) (Hypervisor)
The type of data replication I'm attempting to configure is Transactional and according to the Microsoft documentation for Replication Backward Compatibility, this should be working fine, but for some reason, the wizard is not playing ball.
Any help would be appreciated.
