When attempting to perform a geodata service replication, the following error is returned:
Error: Create Replica failed. DBMS table not found. The workspace is not connected.
Concurrently, a SEVERE level error is logged in the ArcGIS Server Manager indicating that the geodata service participating in the replication is the source of the error.
This issue occurs when an alias is specified in the properties of the ArcSDE feature class. The replication process fails due to the difference between the ArcSDE feature class name and the layer name in the Table Of Contents (TOC) in ArcMap.
Note: Ensure the layer names in the ArcMap Table Of Contents match the dataset names in the geodatabase. Refer to Step 2 in ArcGIS Server: Publishing a geodata service with a map service.
