To disable replica tracking on your data, you can use the Disable Replica Tracking tool.

  • The input dataset must be from an enterprise geodatabase and use one of the following registration types:

    • Branch versioning
    • Nonversioned archiving

  • This tool must be run as the data owner.

  • If new feature classes are added to a feature dataset that already has replica tracking enabled, you can run this tool on the feature dataset to enable replica tracking on the new feature classes.

  • In ArcGIS Pro 2.7, the following utility network system tables are included when you enable replica tracking:

    • UN_<ID>_RULES

  • Note:

    Once replica tracking has been enabled, the following minimum client versions can access the dataset:

    • ArcGIS Pro 2.6 for branch versioned datasets
    • ArcGIS Pro 2.7 for nonversioned archiving datasets
    This means you will not be able to open the data in ArcGIS Desktop or earlier versions of ArcGIS Pro.
