Why does a gsrvr DOS window appear when a client connects to ArcSDE?
The gsrvr DOS window is initialized on the SDE server when a client connects to ArcSDE, if the ArcSDE service has the option to allow services to interact with the enabled desktop.
Follow the steps below to disable this option:
1. Navigate to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services.
2. Right-click the ArcSDE service and select Properties.
3. Select the Log On tab.
4. Uncheck the 'Allow services to interact with desktop' check box.
5. Restart the ArcSDE service.
