I have a problem to set up a spatial connection on ArcCatalog.
I already have one connection to the same server working fine (with the user SDE). I'm trying creating a new connection with all the same configurations but with the user sde_load. When I create it and click on "Test Connection" it show me: "Connection succeeded.", but when I click in OK I receive the following message: "Unable to open the selected database (with the current connection properties)." Then when I try connecting, I don't receive any error or warning message, but nothing is showed on Contents area.
I tried creating an odbc connection trough ArcCatalog with the same user (sde_load) an it worked fine.
Does anybody have any idea about what my problem is?
I'm using an SQL server (2005) and ArcCatalog 9.3.
Thanks in advance!
Best regards,
