Something messy :) happened to my geodatabase. When I'm trying to delete a field in ArcMap I get this message:


"Failed to delete the selected field. Table contains a column type not allowed in versioned views"

->>then I hit Ok and another error message appears

*"Could not load data from the data source. If you can correct the problem, press the refresh button to reload data. Possible problems can include bad network connection, invalid field, etc. Attribute column not found [city.sde.PARCELS][STATE_ID = 747]*

->>> then my attribute table is completely empty. Everything worked fine a day before. Another "symptom", maybe unrelated, in ArcCatalog the database didn't responded several time. Other gdb's ont he same server

We have a postgreSQL arsde geodatabase on Linux and we use arcgis 10.1.
