We have implemented ArcGIS for Server 10.3.1 with SQL Express 2008 R2.
I realized that we used the wrong program to activate SQL Express with Database_Server_Desktop_1031_145738.exe and that’s why I had “Class : ArcSDE Personal Server” in the Database Server Properties.
We updated SQL Express to manage Workgroup GDB with Database_Server_Workgroup_1031_145925.exe and everything was fine during the installation with our ArcGIS Server licence.
My issue is that my server is still recognized as a “ArcSDE Personal Server” and my geodatabase are still flagged as personal ones with “sdepersonnal…” in the AUTH_KEY field.
Does somebody know how to force ArcGIS to recognize my server as a workgroup one as it should be ?
