Hi all,


I really need to fill the gap on my knowledge of RDBMS, I know. I am working on it. 


In the meantime:

I want to enable a Enterprise GDB on my Server.


So far we have used only one database that now has become impossible to manage: too many features.

I haven't created the db nor the sde account. 

I have full access to the machine with admin rights, but I do not have the sde password.

The person who created it is no longer in the office and isn't reachable. 


When creating a Enterprise GDB I am asked for sde password.....great!


Now, apparently in Studio management I can set a new password for the SDE user.

Question: am I going to mess the previous database by doing so?

Will this solve the problem?
