Updating from arcsde to arcserver

My environment is the following: My current licenses will expire after the 29th of September (so in 1,5 hours) but I have already a new license-file for the next year.

I've already posted more or less the same question at esri's Geo Net Forum, but until now I have got any response.

Through my frustration of not finding the post-installation wizard with Arc SDE 10.1 and being unsuccessful with the command line tool to start an SDE service on our SDE databases, I found I was able to access the databases and copy/past/add features/delete features/etc. The question is, why do I need to go through the trouble of trying to get the SDE services to run if I can manage our databases through the Desktop tools?

all through direct connections to our SQL Server 2012 machine. I was even able to create an enterprise geodatabase and verified that all of the necessary business tables were created.

This might be an old thread but I just recently came across it.

Pictometry will connect directly to SDE databases, but you have to do it correctly.


  1. Oct 19, 2012. At 10.1 there is no need to install the ArcSDE software unless you need to run an ArcSDE service. If all of your users are making Direct Connections to the geodatabase then the ArcSDE installation is not necessary. As well, most of the functionality offered by ArcSDE commands is now available in ArcGIS.

  2. There are common questions about the behavior of ArcGIS Server 10.6 when used with earlier versions of ArcGIS. If you want to upgrade a previous version of ArcGIS Web Adaptor IIS to 10.6, you'll need to uninstall the old version and install the 10.6 setup. After installing 10.6, you'll need to configure the Web Adaptor.
