I have applied the patch for 10.3 to ArcGIS Server, WebADF Runtime, and Web Applications just fine.  Post install just fine as well

But when i applied 10.3 for ArcSDE the sde service will not run.  The post install says the service stated but when i look in services its not running.  I start the service but it emedialty stops. 

The services throws the message:
The ArcSDE Service(esri_sde) service on Local Computer stated and then stopped.  Som services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.

The Error log shows:
The description for Event ID 110 from source esri_sde cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

The following information was included with the event:

Connection to RDBMS failed

the message resource is present but the message is not found

I'm running win server 2008 R2 64-bit
SQL 2008 R@ 64-bit
ARCSDE for SQL 64-bit

I solved the issue.

The directions were not so clear to me but I had to update my Arc Desktop Client. Then create a direct conection to the SQL database

Next I had to update my ArcSDE Geodatabase in SQL SErver

Once I did that I was able to start the ArcSDE service with no problems and everything seems to be running fine.
