What's the server architecture of your replication setup? Does A and B share distributor? Where's that distributor? Did you setup the agents with FailoverPartner?

Hi Magnus =D Server A: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP4) - 10.0.6000.29 (X64) Sep 3 2014 04:11:34 Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.0 (Build 6002: Service Pack 2) (VM) Server B: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP4) - 10.0.6000.29 (X64) Sep 3 2014 04:11:34 Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation Enterprise Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.0 (Build 6002: Service Pack 2) (VM) Server D (Distributor, also act as Witness: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (SP4) - 10.0.6000.29 (X64) Sep 3 2014 04:11:34 Copyright (c) 1988-2008 Microsoft Corporation Standard Edition (64-bit) on Windows NT 6.1 (Build 7601: Service Pack 1) (VM) Yes, Server A and B share Distributor (Server D) because during the creation of that subscription, I selected the option "Run all agents at the Distributor, ServerD (push subscription)". However I found out that when I "EXEC sp_get_distributor" at Server B, it returned nothing. Below is the Distributor property at Server D. ![alt text][1] Yes, I have setup the agents with Failover Partner, and whenever A failover to B, the transactional replication works well from B to C.

Hi Magnus, I have created a dummy Publication (ServerD as Distributor) at the Server B so that "EXEC sp_get_distributor" at Server B will return "SERVERD" as result. After that I removed the dummy Publication. Finally I am able to remove the article without problem. Thanks !!
