I configured a new database connection within ArcCatalog (Connection to ArcSDE 9.3/Oracle10gR2). A click on the "Test Connection"-button gaves a "Connection succeeded".

Doubleclicking on this newly configured Database connection gives the following error (see Attachment).
The english error message should be: ORA-00942: table or view does not exist SDE.GDB_Items

I tried it with four different ArcSDE 9.3/Oracle10gR2 databases. Always the same Problem. The problems still remains if i use "direct connection" or "application connection" method.

It's not possible to see or to retrieve any data layers from the ArcSDE.

I thought ArcGIS 9.4 Beta would be backwards compatible with ArcSDE 9.3 ?
