    Unanswered: Another distribution agents for the Subcription

    sql2k sp3

    Im getting a message on replication that has been running
    for a while:

    Another distribution agent for the subscription(s) is
    running. NOTE: The step was retried the requested number
    of times (10) without succeeding. The step failed.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    What this means is that another replication step is running while this step was executed. Check all the steps that are Running in Replication Monitor -> Publishers/Subscribers and check if any other steps are running. If they are then you will have either wait for them to be done or you can force them to stop. Once all the steps are stopped then you can run your replication step.

    Hope this helps
