Hi All,

In reference to

I have the same issue as reported in the above link. The immediate issue has been bypassed in that I have granted ALTER TRACE permission to the main Applications account that does DELETE operations on the tables in question but in all honesty I don't want to grant that access just to bypass the error.

Msg 8189, Level 14, State 10, Procedure sp_repl_generateevent, Line 1
You do not have permission to run 'SP_TRACE_GENERATEEVENT'.
Has anyone else ran into this and come up with a better solution other than biting the bullet and giving all accounts that run DELETE operations on the merge Tables ALTER TRACE permission?

I could try some impersonation within the Replication Triggers to overcome this but of course if the replication is recreated then i would need to manually administrate the trigger code to manage the impersonation so that doesn't seem that practical to me.

Does this mean that its now a requirement for all accounts that run delete operations on Merge replication Tables to have Alter Trace Permission? o.O

Some advice would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,
