    I'm getting this, after upgrading from 2000 to 2005.

    Replication-Replication Distribution Subsystem: agent (null) failed.
    The subscription to publication '(null)' has expired or does not

    The only suggestions I've seen are to dump all subscriptions. Since
    we have several dozen publications to several servers, is there a
    decent way to script it all out, if that's the only suggestion?

    Thanks in advance.

    I get the similar error message, can this be explained in terms of its
    possible causes?
    My observation is my transactional replication goes well without any
    problems, but I keep on finding this annoying error in the sql server log.
    Any thoughts on this issue is highly appreciated.

    Jeff, we wound up contacting Microsoft about it. They had us run a
    trace on the server (turning on the "errors and warnings"), determined
    that it had something to do with subscriptions to a particular
    published database, then we removed and recreated them.

    We also, once we'd scripted and removed the subscriptions, we ran
    sp_removedbreplication. Hope this helps.
