disappearing sde connections

Question asked by cenobite on Mar 15, 2017

Using ArcGIS Pro 1.4.  I will create an SDE connection with Insert->Connections->New Database Connection, and it will show up in my Contents pane, I'll connect, add SDE data.  I'll save my project, exit.  Then when I come back in, the connection is gone.  If I create a new one, it names it with a (2) suffix, as if there's already one with that name.  And indeed, if I go to my project directory, the old *.sde file is there, and the new one, but only the one created in the current session is usable within ArcGIS Pro.  Anyone else find a fix for this?  Creating new connections every time one opens ArcGIS defeats the purpose of even having connection files.
