I have a SQL Server Database that I have enabled as an Enterprise Geodatabase 10.5

This enabled fine however it appears that I can only register tables/layers which are held in the dbo schema of the database. I have numerous other spatial tables which are held in other schemas which had been set-up prior to our upgrade to an Enterprise Geodatabase which it appears I cannot register with the Geodatabase as the option is greyed out when I right click on the layer in ArcCatalog 10.5.

I really don't want to transfer these tables to the dbo schema if I can avoid it. Can anyone advise how I can register these spatial tables with the Enterprise Geodatabase?

Thanks

Hi David,

What database permissions does the user have that you are using to try and register the table?

Hi Jake,

I am the db_owner and have full control of the SQL Database

You will need to connect as the data owner.  For example, I have a table owned by vector called XY in a GIS geodatabase:

GIS.VECTOR.XY

I will need to connect as the user 'vector' in order to register this table with the geodatabase.

Ok thanks. I would have thought connecting to the database as the database administrator through ArcCatalog would give me the power to register whatever layer I wanted to with Geodatabase regardless what schema the table/layer is in? This does seem a bit illogical to say the least! This means now I have to create users for all of the schemas I have in the database which seems allot of work in order to complete a simple task!
