I am trying to learn how to use the GeoEvent Extension for ArcGIS Server (both on version 3.1), and the GeoEvent tutorial keeps referencing a Registered Managed Database. I've read a lot of websites on the subject, but am still confused by the difference between a Registered Database and a Registered Managed Database.
Also, I've got my SDE already in ArcGIS Server as a Registered Database. Can I add it in again as a Registered Managed Server? Do I need to change it to a RMS? If I do so, will it break things that I've already got working in SDE, Server, and our ArcGIS Online Organization?
