SSMS 18.2 cannot create replication subscriptions
I am attempting to configure a new subscription for an existing publication, which already has other subscribers. (This is a merge publication on a SQL Server 2008 R2 system.)
I right-click on the publication in the treeview and select "New subscriptions..."
The "New Subscription Wizard" opens, and I click "Next" at the introduction page.
The next page is where I select my publication. My publications are displayed in this window, so all is good so far. I select a publication in the list and click Next.
At this point I get an error and the wizard will not continue:
Invalid object name 'sysservers'. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 208)
NOTE that I also have SSMS 17.9.1 installed, and the same process (on the same SQL Server) works fine.
I am now on v18.3.1 and this same error is still happening. I have never received any comment back or acknowledgement that this post has been considered. Is there somewhere else more appropriate to report bugs, where they will actually be responded to?
Thanks for the reporting the issue.
We’ll take a look at it and prioritize accordingly.
