Sync Framework Conflicts Not being Detected? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm new to Sync Framework and working through the examples using Utility classes and How To code.  I ran the function "MakeConflictingChangesOnClientAndServer" and then ran a sync but it didn't raise an error.   Below is the code for the Synchronization.  

    The make conflicting changes deletes a record from the server and then updates it on the compact client.  When the synchronization runs, rather than throwing a conflict, it adds the record back to the server database and makes it match what is on the compact client.

    I tried in another example changing a field with the same key value on both the server and client (to different values).  Rather than throwing a conflict, the synchronization updated the value to whichever had the later timestamp in the tracking table, regardless of direction.

    Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?   Thanks in advance.  Cheryl

  • Can you enable sync framework tracing in verbose mode and post the trace?
