I have a table that is being replicated via merge replication,

I have set the 'Automatically manage identity ranges' option to Automatic.

There will be a job that inserts 20,000 rows via a bulk insert at the publisher.

I was wondering how to set the identity range management settings for this setup.

The identity field is an int data type.

The publisher range size is 100

I'm trying to enter 100,000 records into a table in merge replication. The publisher range size is 10000, subscriber range is 1000 and Range Threshold percentage is 80.

The insert fails with the following message insert failed. It conflicted with an identity range check constraint in database

Do I need to increase the range to 100000?
Or modify the threshold?
