Conflict Resolution for Merge Replication

All,

I had my first conflict detection with our merge replication setup.  I queried the msmerge_conflict_publicationname_aspolicy table in both publisher and subscriber and found the record that was the loser? This setup is a client subscription (with first to publisher wins).  So the record that "won" was the correct one.

My question is that when I selected to "remove/delete" the conflict from the Conflict GUI, it only removed the conflict record in the publisher table (msmerge_conflict_publicationname_aspolicy); the subscriber msmerge_conflict_publicationname_aspolicy still has the record.

I had to disable my conflict alert I setup b/c this record still exists in the subscriber; I thought that when I "removed/delete" the conflict it would remove the record in both places, but that is not the case.  When I renabled the alert (that monitors conflicts) it still send me an email telling me there is a conflict.

Can someone let me know what needs to be done here?

Sometimes replication dosent tidy up after its self very well in the repl sys tables
what you could do to fix this quickly is :
1, stop user access to both pub/sub "no data changes
2, from the sub server delete the subscription
3, on the sub server run sp_removedbreplivation 'databasename'  "this will remove the repl sys tables"
4, create a new subscription to the publication and unselect the initialisie option "this will recreate the repl sys tables but wont reimport all the data so dosent take long"
