We have over a thousand corporate layers that connect to their Oracle SDE source data via application connects. I'm wondering whether anyone has already written a python script that will convert these layers internal connections into direct connects. I have tried several approaches, including ArcPy's findAndReplaceWorkspacePaths, with no success. In each approach, no errors are thrown, but nothing is changed, either.
With the newer versions of ArcGIS for Desktop requiring direct connects, I'm hoping someone has already solved this.
Thanks for any advice.
