Bring back the SDE command line tools

Idea created by ejohnson on Aug 28, 2019

    Our organization has SQL Server Agent jobs which use CmdExec to run SDE commands, such as sdeversion -o compress, for after-hours geodatabase maintenance.  After upgrading our geodatabases from 10.2 to later versions these jobs no longer function.  These jobs are part of larger database maintenance plans.


    I do not want to have to install Python on the database server, and trying to time a Python script execution on the server hosting ArcGIS Server to execute alongside, just before, or just after a SQL Server Agent job seems to be inconvenient and clunky.  Please bring back the SDE command line tools.
