I'm wondering if anybody has ran into this issue before and has any suggestions on what's causing it/how to fix it. We are restoring a database into lower Dev environments and after the restore the log_reuse_wait_desc is Replication. The problem is we are not using keep replication or CDCs.
This happens in a couple of different setups but I'll keep this initial one simple.
Database from a 2008 instance restored to a 2012 instance. Only way to clear it out is to create a test publication on any random table, no subscription needed, and log_reuse_wait clears.
