This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.
The ReInitializeAllSubscriptions2 method marks all subscriptions for reinitialization.
Call ReInitializeAllSubscriptions2 with bUploadFirst set to TRUE to reinitialize all merge subscriptions to a publication, thereby preserving any changes made at the Subscriber since the last synchronization. This optional syntax directs the Merge Agent to upload all changes from the Subscriber before applying the updated snapshot files when processing the reinitialize request. bUploadFirst is set to FALSE by default.
Reinitializing subscriptions to a publication by using the ReInitializeAllSubscriptions2 method requires appropriate permissions. The login used for the SQLServer object connection must be a member of the sysadmin fixed server role or the db_owner fixed database role in the database referenced by the publication.
If an application calls ReInitializeAllSubscriptions2 on an instance of SQL Server version 7.0 and bUploadFirst is set to TRUE, the constant, SQLDMO_E_SQL80ONLY, and the message "This property or method requires Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later" are returned. ReInitializeAllSubscriptions2 can be used with SQL Server 7.0 and Microsoft SQL Server 2000 or later if bUploadFirst is set to FALSE.
