BUG #: 57493 (SQLBUG_70)
The merge agent fails with the following error message:
The task reports the preceding remote procedure call (RPC) failure in its history, which can be misleading because there are not any other connectivity problems. The merge agent runs into a handled exception with the following stack, as seen in the replication exception log file:
The RPC failed message is the result of a exception with the merge agent. Replmerg.exe fails while inserting generation history, generating an exception when completely filling the allocated memory buffer. This causes an out of space situation and the required null termination character cannot be added, subsequently causing the access violation.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server 7.0. This problem has been corrected in U.S. Service Pack 2 for Microsoft SQL Server 7.0. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
