I am trying to create a workgroup geodatabase by setting up a database server along with ArcGIS Server 10.6. I have SQL Server 2017. When attempting to do so via this help page and through ArcCatalog (Create a desktop or workgroup geodatabase—Database Server (Workgroup) Installation Guide | ArcGIS Enterprise) I get an error that states "Error creating this geodatabase. The application is not licensed to perform this operation."
I have proceeded to run the Database Server setup wizard (Set up a database server—Database Server (Workgroup) Installation Guide | ArcGIS Enterprise) but upon setting the sql server instance and windows login, the application freezes.
In brief: has anyone else had a similar experience with a enterprise workgroup license ArcGIS Server setup? How was it setup to create a editable workgroup geodatabase? Thank you
