sp_MSchange_snapshot_agent_properties is used in snapshot replication, transactional replication, and merge replication.

You must specify all parameters when executing sp_MSchange_snapshot_agent_properties. Execute sp_helppublication_snapshot to return the current properties of the Snapshot Agent job.

When the Publisher runs on an instance of SQL Server 2005, you should use sp_changepublication_snapshot to change properties of a Snapshot Agent job.

Only members of the sysadmin fixed server role at the Distributor can execute sp_MSchange_snapshot_agent_properties.
