Hi everyboy,


I'd like to know if one could connect to a SQL Server Express on a remote machine in a different domain from an ArcGIS Standard client using database autentication. I am asking this because in the ArcCatalog, under Database Servers->Add Database Connection I can only see the parameter of the instane of the SQL Server Express, but no credential parameters. Does it mean it only supports Windows Autentication? If it is so:

  1. can you please point me to a documentation where this is stated, and
  2. how can I connect to a SQL Server Express on a different domain if possible?

I have ArcGIS Desktop Standard and ArcGIS Server Standard Workgroup 10.5.1.

In the past, I've had some problems in doing so, that's why I came here to ask.

Thanks in advance for clarifying.
