To All Python Users:

I am using the ListBrokenDataSources method in python to get all the broken datasources in an mxd.  Now I want the ability to determine the type of connections, specifically SDE, that the broken links are.  I tried to loop through the list of broken data source layers and use the serviceproperties method to determine if it was SDE, but that is returning an error.  Does anyone know if this can be done?  If so, what python method would I use to go about getting this information.  Thanks.
