Message Text

FILESTREAM columns cannot be published in a publication by using a synchronization method of either 'database snapshot' or 'database snapshot character'.

Because FILESTREAM data cannot be accessed through a database snapshot, the snapshot agent will be unable to read FILESTREAM data when either the database snapshot or database_snapshot_character parameter is specified for the synchronization method of the publication.

Change the publication synchronization method to something other than database snapshot or database_snapshot_character, or just exclude the FILESTREAM column from the publication.
