As per my knowledge you cannot pass the IP Address to publisher parameter in sp_mergesubscription_cleanup, you can use the server name only.

I am not sure whether the following will work, but will not harm you by any way, so you can try this. Create a Alias name for the Public IP Server in SQL Server Configuration Manager and try to use that alias name in sp_mergesubscription_cleanup. Good luck :)

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
