We are running ArcCatalog 10.3.1 and we have two tables that were deleted by a developer that is no longer on the team. Although I don't see the tables in ArcCatalog anymore when I look at the database connection for the schema owner, I see entries in SDE.GEOMETRY_COLUMNS and SDE.LAYERS for these two tables. Is there a step to clean up these using ArcCatalog or is there a process to follow? Should I not worry about this data existing for non-existent tables?
Thanks in advance!
Create a simple Table from the database end with the exact same name and using the same Data Owner.
Open ArcCatalog and then delete that table. It should remove those orphaned entries.
