A generic tool to convert multiple mdf files to gdb,
To enjoy multiusers editing environment, our data is stored in mdf files (enterprise). However, when it comes to publishing, we convert the mdf to gdb in order to gain some performance as the services that read from gdb are much faster than those read from mdf. We are wondering if there is a generic tool that can convert multiple mdf files to gdb.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Here I wanted to convert multiple enterprise databases (sql server databases) to gdb. I’m not sure in which sense the “Create Personal GDB” and “Feature class To Geodatabase” can help to perform this task.
You can define name for new personal geodatabase, then input all feature class of file geodatabase in the parameter in my model picture and it will be converted. it is easy.
I’m not sure how this should work. Converting multiple sde geodatabase in one go to gdb (the tool needs to be generic without playing with the layers!)
Feature class To Geodatabase (multiple) tool not used as your picture, to convert you SDE data to GDB
input all feature classes of SDE in the tool , and it converts them into personal geodatabase.
I’ll see if the FME has very generic robust tools that can convert multiple mdf files to an equivalent gdb
Thanks for your reply.
