Schema changes

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

Applying schema changes in replicas involves several steps. First, you need to compare the replica schemas to find differences. This process produces a replica schema changes file. This file can then be imported to apply the changes.

In a connected environment, follow the steps in Comparing replica schemas to compare replicas and Importing a replica schema to import the changes.

In a disconnected environment, before you can compare replica schemas, you first need to export the schema to a file, then send it to the relative replica for comparison and import. See Exporting a replica schema to learn how to do this.

You can run the import wizard to see the differences, then exit without applying changes. The wizard also allows you to choose to apply only some of the schema changes.
