Direct Connect does not work unless server name is included

Last Published: April 25, 2020


When using Direct Connect in SDEWORKSPACE, the following errors may result during service administration and the service does not start:

"<WARNINGS><WARNING code="192" message="
[ERR0927] ImageServer on MYMACHINE: Layer with ID 0 cannot be created. Unable to establish connection with datasource."/></WARNINGS>

> Jan 7, 2005 12:58:40 PM: java.lang.String
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<ERROR message="[ERR0125] Error when trying to administer Service."/>
<ERROR message="[ERR0930] Check your map file's layers and data source connections. ArcIMS service dc cannot be created." />


One possible cause for this set of errors is that a server name is not included in SDEWORKSPACE.


ArcIMS is expecting a string value for the SDEWORKSPACE server attribute. Any non-space value can be assigned to this attribute. In the following example, server has been set to 'myserver'.

<SDEWORKSPACE name="sde_ws-0" server="myserver" instance="sde:sqlserver:myserver" database="mydatabase" user="map" encrypted="false" password="mypassword" />
