I have searched a lot in the net, but i just found Add Spatial Database Connection fails? here.

However, I cannot see the confirmed answer.

I want to know if anyone has found the solution? my ArcGIS desktop version and ArcSDE version is 10.0 and Sqlserver R2 2008. The problem is that when i click test in spatial database connection wizard in ArcCatalog tree can see the message "process succeed" but in fact after clicking ok nothing is created.

finally i can do it by create arcsde connection tools in work space in data management tools by using arc toolbox. it works. i do believe that toolboxes works properly when some short cut solution doesn't work. now i can see all feature tables in management studio.
