Problem: Raster datasets do not load into ArcSDE 8.3 using ArcGIS 9.x

Description

Raster datasets do not load into ArcSDE 8.3 using ArcGIS 9.x.

Cause

ArcGIS 9.x does not support raster data loading into ArcSDE 8.3. ArcGIS 9.x allows for reading and viewing existing ArcSDE 8.3 raster datasets, only.

Solution or Workaround

Upgrade ArcSDE 8.3 to the same of ArcGIS. If unable to upgrade, retain one installation of ArcGIS 8.3 to load raster data into ArcSDE 8.3.

After upgrading from ArcSDE 8.3 to ArcSDE 9.x, read the white paper: "Upgrading Geodatabase Raster Data From ArcGIS 8.3 to ArcGIS 9"
