comment ArcGIS SP4 fails to open file geodatabases created with ogr2ogr
Yes, a FileGDB created with ogr alone is fine with ArcGIS 10.0 SP3, but broken in SP4. I suspect it's an ArcGIS issue, not GDAL, but I don't know for sure. I was hoping there was an ogr flag related to metadata that might fix it.

Brad, it is broken in SP4 whether you start a new geodatabase or overwrite an existing one.

comment Exporting PostgreSQL table to FileGDB: wkbUnknown layer geometry type
Sorry for the bad form, but the answer is to add the -nlt option, which allows you to set the layer type when -sql is used. I found this at: trac.osgeo.org/gdal/ticket/4186 In other words: ogr2ogr -overwrite -sql "SELECT * from db_pts LIMIT 1" -f "FileGDB" /tmp/test.gdb PG:"host='HOST' dbname='DB'" -nlt POINT Sorry for the traffic.
