Sync Framework Timeout when Provisioning & Syncing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 SQL Server 2012 databases (at different sites) which have been synchronizing successfully for a number of months. I noticed they stopped synchronizing in mid-December with a timeout error. I am unaware of anything happening to the databases around this time.

    So far I tried:

    1. Copy one database to the other site and run the sync there (thus eliminating the VPN between the sites) - still getting timeout messages

    2. Copied both databases to my development machine which is more powerful than the machines used at the sites and tried to sync - timeout messages

    3. Decided that there must be some problem with the sync configuration so deprovisioned the 2 databases and then tried to provision the server database - get timeout messages.

    System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): Timeout expired. The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.
    The statement has been terminated. ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception (0x80004005): The wait operation timed out

    The line referred to above is this:


    So this uses the sync framework so I can't debug that.

    Any ideas what I can do to get to the bottom of this?
