Just learned that SQL2012 do not support "transaction replication with update-able subscriber", But i believe the issue with merge replication will be the same in SQL2005 and above. So:
Trying to setup merge replication between two live databases and both have same structure and same data for replication related objects
They do have different data in there related Foreign key tables
Reason is because i am try to solve/avoide following error:
The schema script 'DbTable1_2.sch' could not be propagated to the subscriber. (Source: MSSQL_REPL, Error number: MSSQL_REPL-2147201001)
Get help: http://help/MSSQL_REPL-2147201001
Could not drop object 'dbo.DbTable1' because it is referenced by a FOREIGN KEY constraint. (Source: MSSQLServer, Error number: 3726)
Get help: http://help/3726
So question is:
How to start merge replication between two live database without a need to Drop and Re-create objects on subscriber?
Is this really necessary OR can be avoided with any option?
Note: I am trying to implement merge-replication as an alternative to "Transactional replication with update-able subscriber"
