I am able to successfully move an ArcSDE geodatabase from one SQL Server 2008 R2 Express to another SQL Server of the same version using the restore backup method. Now I tried to move it the same way to an SQL Server 2012 Enterprise. But it does not work. If I connect to the geodatabase on SQL Server 2012 via ArcCatalog I only see Tables no Feature Classes. The user and logins of the two DBs are same.
What am I missing? How would you move the geodatabase?
Thanks for your help.
