How do you reverse the "Register with Geodatabase" operation?

I reckon it isn't uncommon to accidentally register (since it is the first option on Manage menu in ArcCatalog 10.2).

Is there a tool (or python function) that can reverse this?

To remove a table from Table Registry you need to execute the sde command:

sdetable -o unregister -t av.world -u av -p mo -i 7654

This command won't remove the objectid field, so you need to do manually.

    What about in the post-sde command line world? is this functionality in arc catalog now? – VBAHole Apr 28 '16 at 19:11
