All records created during snapshot phase have schema name mssql_server.INVENTORY.dbo.products.Key or mssql_server.INVENTORY.dbo.products.Value.
While all records created during streaming have schema name mssql_server.inventory.dbo.products.Key or mssql_server.inventory.dbo.products.Value.

If Avro format is used instead of JSON, the connector fails since it tries to register an incompatible schema in Schema Registry (the schema itself is the same but the schema namespace is different - schema registry is case sensitive).
