ArcSDE Administrator Dialog at 10.1


The long awaited GUI for managing ArcSDE administrative tasks such as versioning, connections and locks has arrived at 10.1!

The Geodatabase Administration Dialog can be accessed from ArcCatalog & ArcMap by right clicking the geodatabase connection.

Admin Dialog 10_1

Version Manager

The redesigned Version Manager has been moved into the Geodatabase Administration dialog box and includes the following new features:

  • A tree view that lets you see how versions are related
  • The ability to filter for a specific transactional or historical version, versions that could prevent the DEFAULT version from compressing to state 0, or versions owned by a specific user
  • The ability to see all the properties of a selected version without having to open a separate dialog box
  • A list recommending the order in which versions should be reconciled. Geodatabase administrators (sde/dbo) have access to the Reconcile Order subtab on the Geodatabase Administration dialog box. The subtab will only be available if you are signed in as the administrator.

Connections

You can use the Connections tab on the Geodatabase Administration dialog box to view all users connected to ArcSDE geodatabases. The information provided helps you monitor which users and client machines are connecting to your geodatabase and how long each session has been open.

You can disconnect user sessions from this dialog box by right-clicking a session and clicking Disconnect User.

In order to view ALL connections, you will need to be connected as the geodatabase administrator such as the sde/dbo user. The “Connections” tab is only visible, once a connection as the geodatabase administrator has been made. This will allow you to view both Direct and Application server connections.

Locks

The Locks tab allows you to view what type of locks are being held on data in an enterprise geodatabase and who is holding the lock. Through this dialog box, you can see active locks on datasets and versions and which user has acquired the lock.

In order to view ALL locks, you will need to be connected as the geodatabase administrator such as the sde/dbo user.
