I am trying to setup Favorite SDE connection files using a unc path so the location can be seen by all users whether or not they have a mapped drive setup to the same location (different users might have different drive letters). I added data to ArcGIS Pro using the SDE connection from the unc path. Now I want to change the data source to a different SDE connection in the same folder location. Unfortunately, following the instructions:
When I get to the location of the SDE connections on the network, I cannot get to the SDE connection file to navigate to an SDE feature class even though the SDE connection files are stored at this location.
ArcGIS Pro is looking for a polygon feature class but I do not have the ability to access the SDE connection to get to the SDE polygon feature class. As such I am unable to connect to an SDE database when using the Set Data Source button from the properties of a layer in ArcGIS Pro?
When I am in ArcMap 10.5.1 I can navigate to the same location on the network and see the SDE connection file and then drill down to the feature class I am looking for.
Any help on changing an SDE data source in Pro would be greatly appreciated.
