What is snapshot agent in the SQL concept? Trying to understand this since sometimes there is replcation error and will come across snapshot agent in the troubleshooting process. Thanks

Re: snapshot agent

The SQL Snapshot Agent takes a "snapshot" of the schema and data contained in tables and database objects and stores them in files. It then stores the files in the snapshot folder for access by subscribers. It also records synchronization jobs in the distribution database. Please see the following link for more details.

Hope this helps. If so, please rate the post.
