[ @upload_first = ] 'upload_first'

sp_reinitmergesubscription is used in merge replication.

sp_reinitmergesubscription can be called from the Publisher to reinitialize merge subscriptions. We recommend re-running the Snapshot Agent as well.

If you add, drop, or change a parameterized filter, pending changes at the Subscriber cannot be uploaded to the Publisher during reinitialization. If you want to upload pending changes, synchronize all subscriptions before changing the filter.
