Hi @Alfie B. Larioza ,
> The Merge Agent failed because the schema of the article at the Publisher does not match the schema of the article at the Subscriber. This can occur when there are pending DDL changes waiting to be applied at the Subscriber. Restart the Merge Agent to apply the DDL changes and synchronize the subscription.
Please restart the sync process. From the client in a pull situation, or restart from the publisher in a push situation.
In short the application of DDL changes ran into a conflict but restarting the sync will usually resolve the issue. And no, it doesn't start from the beginning, it should just pick up from the point of failure.
Refer to this similar thread.
