Hi everyone,

I am using MS SQL 17 and ArcGIS Pro 2.5. What I want to do is to publish a utility network from a file geodatabase. So I  started with an attempt to copy/paste my utility network to Enterprise geodatabase. However, that was not possible because I would non stop get an error 000260. I played with some script to fix that, it didn't work. My next idea was to export an asset package from a file geodatabase and apply it to Enterprise. I have created the same service area and Utility network in Enterprise gdb and applied the asset package. That worked perfectly.

However, after that, I deleted/drop the database from the SQL server(what I have read it is the recommended way to delete Gdb by some users in Pro) because of some issues with versioning and tried to repeat previous steps. And now I am experiencing several errors. Pro would create the UN on Enterprise gdb without any errors but every time I would try to add that newly created UN layer to the map or try to see the properties of the UN layer ArcGIS Pro would crash. If I try to apply an asset package to it, it would say that the only data owner has permission to do that. However, I am logged with the right portal account which is the data owner. I believe it can not read the UN layer properly because is broken.

Now I have a question, what would cause this? At first, I didn't have any problems. I deleted DB from MS SQL studio but left the SDE table, so I am very suspicious that I haven't deleted something right. And I don't know if it might be important it is SDE owned schema gdb. Or that on the portal I am still assigned as Utility network owner of the previous network?

I tried to create gdb with a new database from SQL, new users. Nope. Same error.


Thank you

how did you delete the database but leave the SDE tables?

Did you delete all the tables that were like this; "dataowner.tablename" in SSMS?

Have you attempted to create a brand new SQL Server Enterprise Geodatabase using the Create Enterprise Geodatabase GP tool?

I think that I am a little confused on the steps and exact processes you have completed in relation to the DB "drop/delete".

Hi George,

firstly, thank you for the answer!

I believe it is confusing.

I have deleted the database in which I stored my Geodatabase. So the DB described in step 5 section "Run the Create Enterprise Geodatabase tool" at this link Create a geodatabase in SQL Server—Manage geodatabases in SQL Server | Documentation. I think you understood right. And yes, for both times I was using the Create Enterprise Geodatabase GP tool. With two different databases previously mentioned for storing Geodatabase(I have deleted first one)

Oh and I forgot to say that regarding SDE tables, I meant actually on sde database. I used the wrong word.

Ok, if you created a new SQL Enterprise Geodatabase then you should have no issues.

For these issues, I would recommend that contact Esri Technical support and open a case with a Geodatabase analyst to review the behavior.

It may be too difficult to troubleshoot via the forum.
