http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834124 will give you the reasons for the same inssue in SQL Server 200 standard. same reasons may apply for SQL Server 2005 as well. To resolve this problem, use either of the following two methods. â€¢ Use the same Windows domain user account to run the SQL Server services and the SQL Server Agent services.
â€¢ Create a Windows domain user account on the Publisher and on the Subscriber that have identical user names and passwords. —————————————-
