Schema different between hub and member database of data sync

Rhonda Cunningham 26 Reputation points

When setting up data sync the schema in the member database is not identical to hub database. Specifically datetimeoffset scale is not the same and a unique, filtered index is missing the filter criteria, which causes sync to error.
Why are there changes in the schema on a direct copy. There is only 1 member at this time and the sync is 1 way from the hub.

How do I get the member database to have same schema as hub?

Azure SQL Database

    Create a dacpac (not a bacpac, but a dacpac) of the hub database using SQL Server Management Studio or other tool and store/upload the dacpac on an Azure Storage Account, after that create the member database from an import of the dacpac using Azure Portal.

    This will ensure the schemas are the same and it will make the initial sync faster.
