I have a customer's server which is giving me a "Snapshot not available" error when trying to do it's replication.
From what I've read, I need to mark it for reinitialization.
Now, here's the important part: On the subscribing server, there is information that's being added to the database via a manual interface, that the information on the publishing server (which serves to bring in XML feeds and then publish the inserts to the web server's database) can't overwrite.
So, what I need to know is whether executing the reinitialization will overwrite the subscribing server with the publishing server's copy of the data which does not contain these manual entries? (I'm not the person who set this up, otherwise I would have set it up with the subscriber's updates being propagating back to the publishing server)
