Everyday at 8 AM my remote distributor starts about 30 replication jobs. Everyday I get at least 2 replication errors, sometimes as many as 10 with the following error messages.

<-- Error Message Start

DESCRIPTION: Replication-agentclassname: agent <Publication Name> failed. The parameter is incorrect. The step failed.


JOB RUN: (None)

Error Message End -->

The jobs which fail are not consistent. They are random, meaning the job succeeds sometimes and fails other times, with the parameters inside the job are static, they don't change.

Has anyone seen this?

My remote distributor is running on SQL 2005 SP3, while my 3 publishing servers are SQL 2000 SP4, with 12 subscribers.
