It sounds like we are supposed to use mosaic datasets to store raster imagery, like DRG topos for instance, instead of raster catalogs. What is the best way to convert from raster catalog to mosaic dataset? There does not look to be an easy way. All the individual rasters are embedded into the raster catalog. Do you have to export them first and then have the mosaic dataset reference these? We are upgrading our SQL Server from 2008 to 2016 and ArcGIS Server from 10.3.1 to 10.5 so just trying to get everything in the latest and greatest formats.

It turns out that using Add Raster to Mosaic Dataset will work with Raster Catalog - you just have to select Raster Type "Table" and then you can see the Raster Catalog as input. It seemed to work fine.
