Maximum Number of Instances

Afternoon,

I've loaded several new features into a SQLExpress SDE database. I was successful in registering the folder that the connection to my database resides in, but I keep getting the error below when I attempt to register the database inself. I browse to the folder and select my connection *.sde and attempt to import it, but it always fails.

The connection property set was missing a required property or the property value was unrecognized. Maximum number of connections to instance exceeded.

I attempted to view the services running on my pc, through the Windows Service Manager, but there are no instances of ArcSDE running? As well, I checked the value set inside my dbo.SDE_server_config and the connections = 64.

How do I set a higher number of usable instances? Why is not showing up in the Windows Service Manager?

How do I find out how many / and who is using up all my instances? I'm the only one working on this machine and both my ArcGIS server and SQL Express installation is local to my machine.

Walter
