ArcCatalog Database Connections by group

Idea created by donahuel on Nov 9, 2011
    It would really help organize spatial database connections in ArcCatalog if the Database Connections tree would allow you to create groups for storing connections related to specific servers.

    Currently if you are an sde administrator managing multiple spatial databases on multiple servers with multiple connection types and logins (as data reader, editor, owner, etc), the number of database connections in the tree gets to be a little overwhelming to keep track of.

    Sure, you could move all of those sde connection files to a directory somewhere else, but then the map service publishing tool will complain about the data connections being referenced via a UNC path.
