I have a problem when doing merge replication. I need to have a identity column on both the publisher and subscriber, eg id. When the publisher is down, my app will now reference to the subscriber and insert into the subscriber. However when the publisher is up, the app will reference to publisher and start to insert into the publisher. This will cause conflict in the id. Also, i need the id to be in running order, therefore i cant use range for publisher and subscriber. Anyone have idea how to solve this problem?
