    Unhappy Unanswered: ???Replication timeout???

    Hi all

    I changed the 'sa' password and after that I got the following errors in the subscription job history:

    1º-Connecting to Subscriber 'SAONT045\REPORT'
    2º-Login failed for user 'sa'.
    3º-The process could not connect to Subscriber 'SAONT045\REPORT'. The step failed.
    4º-The job failed. The Job was invoked by User sa. The last step to run was step 1 (Run agent.).

    What can I do????
    Are there anything that I can do to solve that problem without recreate the replication again?

    Thanks in advance

    this is just a hunch but is the sa password the same on both the publisher and subscriber.

But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.” Earnest Hemingway, A Farewell To Arms.

    Sounds like you need to check security settings on the Distribution agent. I usually set it to impersonate using Windows authentication, since both SQLAgent services are running under the same Windows account (easier to maintain).

    Make sure the credentials used by SQL serer agent successfully logs into subscriber
