conflict_<schema>_<table> (Transact-SQL)

The conflict_<schema>_<table> table contains information about conflicting rows in peer-to-peer replication. A conflict table exists for each replicated table in a publication, where the name of the conflict table is appended with the schema and article name. These article-specific conflict tables exist in each publication database.

For peer-to-peer replication, by default, the Distribution Agent fails when it detects a conflict. A conflict error is logged into the error log, but no conflict data is logged into the conflict table; therefore it is not available for viewing. If the Distribution Agent is allowed to continue, a conflict is logged locally on each node where it was detected. For more information, see "Handling Conflicts" in Conflict Detection in Peer-to-Peer Replication.
