Note: This applies to SQL server 2005 & 2008.

I have noticed that when replication merge publication is created SQL also creates the default replication maintenance tasks and all enabled except the following 2:

• Distribution Clean Up: Distribution
• Replication monitoring refresher for distribution

My question is why is ‘Distribution Clean Up: Distribution’ not enabled by default? I have found the following on the Microsoft website as I was trying to identify what each of the tasks do. According to this article (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms152762.aspx) Distribution Clean Up: Distribution should run Runs every ten minutes – but its disabled, why?

I’m interested as I have a problem where my distribution db is growing and believe this job should be running.

Did you ever find the answer to this? I have the exact same two jobs disabled.

Thanks.

Sorry for bumping a really old post...

I've been looking into this for a while now but have not managed to find much info.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms152482.aspx
States that it should be running continuously.

http://sqlmonitormetrics.red-gate.com/disabled-replication-jobs/
Explicitly ignores this job.

What is this job for? Can it / should it be enabled?

Thanks.
