Error: "Failed to synchronize with the server. Exchange of watermarks failed. The database cannot sync because the data is unavailable.
Act version 188.8.131.52 hotfix 1. Main database on a Win2003 server, 6 users in house (shared connection to database) running XP pro, 2 users with remote databases running XP pro. One remote user got this error message the other remote user is syncing just fine.
I found the fix in the knowledgebase, created a new remote database, unpacked and installed on remote computer, tried to sync and got the same error message.......now what?

This may also be caused by damaged sync objects on the main database or a damaged sync set. Run maintenance on the main database (Tools > Database Maintenance > Check & Repair), then run Sync Object and Security rebuilds on the main database using ACT! Diagnostics. Instructions are KB Article 19642. Then create a new sync set and a new remote database for that user.
Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.
