When right-clicking a feature class in an ArcSDE geodatabase from ArcGIS Desktop, the 'Privileges', ‘Register As Version’ commands are grayed out even though the user is connected as the data owner, and (Advanced) ArcGIS Desktop license is being used.
In my case the data owner is the ‘SDE’ user, I restored this database from the backup to a new SQL server instance on a test machine, The SDE user is able to connect to the database and view the feature classes, now I am trying to assign privileges to users and register the feature classes as versioned and I found out that the Privileges, Register as Version commands are greyed!
I made sure that I am using the SDE user who owns the data and an Advanced license of ArcMAP 10.5.0 https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000009946
I tried to use change privileges (data management) tool but I got this error!
ERROR 999999: Error executing function. DBMS table not found [42000:[Microsoft][ODBC Driver 13 for SQL Server][SQL Server]Cannot find the object 'CanLocations_evw', because it does not exist or you do not have permission.] Failed to execute (ChangePrivileges).
I checked the view in the database in its there! What might be the issue here!
