What am I doing wrong?

Trying to establish a POSTGRESQL SDE Database to hold GIS Data.


Here is what I have


POSTGIS for 9.3 ver 2.1.5

ArcDesktop 10.3

(This has also failed on PGADMIN 9.0.5, POSTGIS for 9.0 ver 1.5, ArcDesktop 10.1 with the same error "Invalid DB Name")


I have set the POSTGRES db to be open to all connections in the pg_hba and postgresql .conf's.

I created a spatial DB through the POSTGIS installer

I run Create Enterprise Spatial Database through ArcCatalog and all I get is

"Invalid DB Name".

(postgres as dbname fails also)

For the Database my string is just Brazos as seen below.

The instance is localhost:5432
