Forum for users of SQL Compare schema synchronization utility
Moderators: JonathanWatts, Chris Auckland, David Atkinson
I'm using SQL Data Compare 22.214.171.124 to do a command line sync using a project set up in the GUI. I call the project like so:
"c:\\program files\\red gate\\sql data compare 8\\sqldatacompare.exe" /project:"C:\\Users\\Administrator\\Documents\\SQL Data Compare\\SharedProjects\\my-database-sync-project.sdc"
I couldn't find documentation on what exactly the "<<" "<>" ">>" indicators mean under the "DB1" and "DB2" headings in the output.
When DB1 is >> and DB2 is blank, I assume new records were pushed from DB1 to DB2. Fine.
However when I see DB1 <> and DB2 <> on the same line for the same table, I'm confused about what's going on.
Of most concern is seeing DB1 blank, and DB2 << which seems to indicate DB2 pushed changes back to DB1. I definitely don't want this to happen given that the project was set up in the GUI to go in one direction, from DB1 to DB2. I hope the command line version is not actually syncing some data the opposite way from DB2 to DB1?

Here is what the output of the command line means:
When comparing DB1 with DB2:
== == Identical objects
<> <> Different objects
<< Objects that exist in DB2 that don't exist in DB1
>> Objects that exist in DB1 that don't exist in DB2
