Yes the log reader agent is running:
Initially i had problems shrinking the log file. Later I had used exec sp_replrestart and restated the
replication and also manually unmarked the transactions pending for replication using the following
EXEC sp_repldone @xactid = NULL, @xact_segno = NULL, @numtrans = 0, @time
= 0, @reset = 1
and then could shrink the log
just as trouble shoot i found that the database log is not being reused due replication from following :
select name, log_reuse_wait_desc from sys.databases
but after a while I again see the same following error
The replication agent has not logged a progress message in 10 minutes. This might indicate an unresponsive agent or high system activity. Verify that records are being replicated to the destination and that connections to the Subscriber, Publisher, and Distributor are still active.
The distributon agent is working fine but the log reader agent doesnot.....
It keep on failing even after restarting the agent....
One last thing... I have the sync with backup enabled between distributor and subscriber...
