Hi I have setup transaction replication from a remote server to a central server. The connections is a leased line. Due to some problems in leased line the replication did not take place for many days. Now the leased line has been set right. And I have to restart transaction replication again. But if I start now, the articles are not synchronised. So first a snapshot will be created and distributed to central server. But the leased line speed is less and transferring the snapshot like this would take lot of time. So please suggest what steps I should take to make replication work again. Also will there be any lockes applied on the tables on publisher side during snapshot creation?
