Hey All,

I bit of a head scratcher.

I was replicating to a client's database and all was well. Now I have noticed I am getting the errors:

The process could not connect to Subscriber 'XXXXX'. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL0)

Named Pipes Provider: Could not open a connection to SQL Server [53]. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 53)

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 53)

Login timeout expired (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: HYT00)


We're replicating across the internet to a client site. I can telnet no problem and from SSMS, I can connect to the database.

The box is set up as publisher and distributor.

Any thoughts?

I have had a similar problem when i was setting up replication, it turned out to be an issue with running sql under a local account.

Could this be the issue?

Sorry if I'm asking the obvious being a newbie and all, but is Named Pipes enabled in the SQL Server 2005 Network Configuration area of SQL Server Configuration Manager?

Hi Adrian,

Yes it was. I still have no clue as to what is wrong with this. In the end, I used a different box for replication in order to get it working. I've not had time in the past week to look at this box and resolve the issue.

I had this same issue. I was working on a vm cluster. I had updated the host file on one server but not the other. Once I had the correct IP and hostname for the subscription server on each publisher node it was resolved. Hope this helps!
