I am using ArcCatalog 10.3.1 and SQL server 2012. I have a feature class called "city" using by a map service. I have a new copy of this feature class with more record from other server. What i did was:
step 1: stopped the map service;
step 2: changed the feature class name to city_2 successfully;
step 3: copied and pasted my new update feature class into my SQL database call same name city;
step 4: restarted the map service and tested it to make sure the map service works successfully;
step 5: deleted the city_2 from the SQL database successfully;
step 6: Clicked "refresh" the SQL database, but the city_2 feature class came back;
Please advise why I can not delete this old feature class?!
