2688855 - Replication is recieving the message: Msg 546, Level 16, State 1: - SAP ASE / REP


The system is configured using HVAR and a warm standby replication.  The table that is failing has a "self referencing foreign key" is failing with the following error:

Msg 546, Level 16, State 1:
Server 'MYSERVER', Line 3:
Foreign key constraint violation occurred, dbname = 'dbname', table name = 'mytable', constraint name = 'fky_parent_mytable_id'.
Command has been aborted.
(0 rows affected)

Other than, skipping the transaction which causes the data to be out-of-sync, how is this resolved?
