I just created a new database in my Postres called GlenMary and I can't get ArcMap to connect through my already established database connection in ArcMap. I am trying to add some new data to the database but I keep getting an error when I try to connect. GlenMary database

Even though I can connect to the database below it ("beauregard"-highlighted), and the database name validates and populates in the database dropdown, when I click "OK" I get the following error. Any idea how to fix this? enter image description here


There is a note in the doc:

Type the database name in lowercase; upper- and mixed-case object names are not supported for geodatabases in PostgreSQL. If you type a database name in upper or mixed case, ArcGIS converts it to lower case.

so you may want to rename your DB.

  • Well, your answer is totally correct. I was able to connect once I changed the name to lowercase without any issues. – gwydion93 Feb 13 '18 at 21:21
