Conflict resolution

Mastership restrictions prevent most inconsistent changes in different replicas, but some are unavoidable. To avoid many naming conflicts, the administrators for a family must create and enforce naming rules for objects. A use model that is enforced consistently across sites reduces the potential for conflicts. For example, the administrators for a family follow these rules:
  • All location-specific objects must include a location identifier.
  • Objects that will be used at multiple replicas are all created at one replica.
