The issue of accessing the instance by dot (.)/localhost/computername,

I???m not sure if these ???expressions??? are equivalent in case of accessing a local machine by filling dot (.) or local host or computer name for the instance box.

I got that the ArcSDE WORKGROUP should be accessed by dot but dot by localhost or computer name. Is that correct?

Thank you for the answer.

Hi Jamal,

These 3 connections can all be used when you are accessing a local machine for your ArcSDE Workgroup/Personal geodatabases.

.\sqlexpress
localhost\sqlexpress
computername\sqlexpress

Alternatively, you can also use the dynamic TCP/IP port number for the SQL Express instance, for example:

computername,8774

We would recommend to use the following format so that it's clear to which machine and which named instance you are going to connect.

computername\sqlexpress

Thanks,
Ben L.
