Recently upgraded to ArcGIS Desktop 10.2.2 and Windows 8.1 because of a hardware upgrade. Now, connecting to SDE geodatabase on server takes approximately 30 minutes. Previously took 1-2 minutes. Server is running Windows Server 2012 standard and ArcGIS Server 10.2.2. Geodatabase is version 10, Microsoft SQL Server.
Has anyone experienced this? I'm working with a tech support person but not making much progress.
