I have a geodatabase in ArcSDE 9.2 and using MS SQL 2005. We are using a desktop with ArcGIS 9.3 to load rasters into it using a read-write capable user created in MY SQL (server auth). It was working just fine until recently. Now when we try to load a raster, it seems to run to completion and then the ArcCatalog display is "closed" so that just the connections show. We can then open the connection back up, but the raster dis not loaded into the geodatabase. attached are two screenshots showing the results of the raster load (capture.jpg) and the properties for the database (capture2.jpg). Since this problem started, I've increased the size of the geodatabase from 4GB with 190MB free to 8GB with 4GB available space. I also found that the OS drive on the server was short of free space (due to a sophos antivirus temp file bug) and fixed that so that the OS drive has 159GB of free space. Finally, I've rebooted the server a couple of times to eliminate locks on the database. None of this has solved the disappearing raster problem. Has anyone seen this before and found a solution?
