Troubleshooting: Do I need to be the SDE user to run Trace All Feeders?

If you are running a version prior to ArcFM 8.2, you do NOT need to be logged in as SDE. Versions prior to 8.2 do not compress the database during Trace All Feeders.

If you are using version 8.2 or later, it depends on how you access Trace All Feeders. If you wish to compress the database, you must be logged in as SDE.

  • If you are using the standalone version outside of ArcCatalog (TraceAllFeeders.exe), you must log in as SDE. The standalone Trace All Feeders cannot be run without compressing the database.

  • If you are running Trace All Feeders from ArcCatalog and don’t wish to compress the database, you do NOT need to log in as SDE. If you wish to compress the database, you must log in as SDE.
