Running 'Analyze Map' on the Map Service Publishing toolbar displays the message: "10030: Layer's data source is ArcSDE not accessed via a direct connection" even though all layers are accessed via direct connections.
Layer's data source is ArcSDE not accessed via a direct connection
This warning may be encountered when the direct connect spatial database connection is created in ArcCatalog and the sde prefix in the service field is entered in uppercase.
To resolve this behavior, it is necessary to edit the service field in the spatial database connection, making the sde prefix all lowercase. Following this action, re-add the layers to the MXD, and run the Analyze Map tool as before.
This is not an error message. These warning messages may be ignored a direct connection use has been verified.
