Replicator 7.4 - Conflicts and Replicator

Other Considerations

It is important to note that although it is a best practice to set your conflict handling settings to be the same for both outbound and inbound servers within a connection, you are not required to do so. Therefore, if you wanted conflicts handled differently on one server versus another, it is possible to do so by setting each server to a different setting.

You must think of conflicts as a uni-directional event. A conflict will only ever occur at one side, flowing in the direction of outbound to inbound with the conflict occurring on the inbound server. It is therefore the settings on the inbound server for conflict resolution that will be applied.

For More Information

For more information on configuring and monitoring conflicts, refer to the Metalogix Replicator Reference Guide.

Best Practices

There are certain practices which can be put into effect in order to minimize the number of conflicts that occur.


Turning on the SharePoint versioning setting for your lists and libraries is a safe-guard against possible conflicts. In the event that a conflict does occur, you will always have a history of what occurred to the document.
