SQL Server 2005 Replication

Hi,

We have two Servers on which we have implemented the Trasantional Replication and it works fine.
But still we have some unclear answers like Replcation is done from Server A to Server B.
Before doing the replication we generated the Server A Database script and ran on Server B, and IDENTITY INSERT was ON for all Tables along with Primary Keys.  Now Issue is that, we have TRANS table in the database  on which we perform inserts at server B.
So, at present (Server A)the current MIN(ID) is around 6000 and the MAX(ID)  approx  130000 in TRANS. If we are inserting data in TRANS table at server B, It starts the ID column from 1. and I affraid once the TRANS table ID column reaches to 6000, it can create some Issue.
Issues like can't  contain duplicate records.

Please advice,

With Regards,

Sounds like your problem is that you don't have immediate updating subscribing enabled.  You have replication setup from A to B, but not from B to A also.  So, the changes you make at B will not get propogated to A.

Hi,

Actually we have TRANS table whose data is transferring from server A to Server B using Tracnsactional Replication(Using Primary Key). and For Example:
Server A TRANS table starts from ID 6 to 130000 which is  transferred to server B TRANS table (IDENTITY INSERT ON). SO server B TRANS also contains data from 6 to 130000.
Myquestion is: When we insert records in TRANS table of server B. It take ID column from 1.
and i believe that if this IDcolumn reach to 6000. it can create insertion problem. because it contains primary key on ID column.

Hi

Sorry, I did typo mistake,

Myquestion is: When we insert records in TRANS table of server B. It starts ID column from 1.
and i believe that if this IDcolumn reach to 6. it can create insertion problem. because it contains primary key on ID column.

We want whenever we insert records into TRANS table of server B, its ID column starts from the max(value) that was inserted during replication from server A. It should not start from 1. Please advice

Yeah, you're probably not going to be able to do that unless you
a.  programatically go find the highest value and then use
SET IDENTITY INSERT on for the table
b.  reseed the values on the B server.

Option a is your best bet.
