(reposting specifically in geodatabase)
Hi - we have an existing SQL Server Express (2012) database and instances that were configured as personal with the 3 connection limitation. We now have ArcGIS for Server Enterprise and want to get rid of this limitation.
A look at the registry shows that the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS ArcSDE_License key indicates Personal. The dbo..SDE_server_config table AUTH_KEY is consistent.
What steps can be used to upgrade the existing SQL Server Express db/instance personal geodatabase to take advantage of ArcGis Server Enterprise Advanced number of connections. We aren't looking to upgrade to regular SQL Express right now.
