I have an Esri geodatabase two-way replica set. I need to update the schema on both databases in the replica set. Esri describes doing this using ArcGIS schema tools (compare/export/import replica schema - see here).
I have control of both databases in the replica set and I would prefer to make a python script, which updates the schema and run that on both databases in the replica set.
Are there potential problems with applying the schema changes to both databases instead using Esri's schema tools?
