In ArcMap 10.5.1, from Computer 'A', I am receiving a 'no editable feature layers' error when trying to edit feature class 'X' that is in a SQL Server Geodatabase. However, I am able to edit feature class 'X' from Computer 'B'.

Both Database Connections, from either computer, were established as user 'M'. I have access to the SQL Server Geodatabase and personally set the permissions for database users. User 'M' has select, insert, update, and delete permissions for that specific feature class table.

To summarize: same user geodatabase connections, same feature class, same version of ArcMap, different edit capabilities on Computer A vs. B. The dataset is not versioned.

What other factors could be contributing to edit privileges?

Solved by Configuring an ArcMap edit session to perform nonversioned edits as described here http://desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.5/manage-data/geodatabases/configuring-an-arcmap-edit-session-to-perform-nonversioned-edits.htm

  • Because it's SQL Server, there might be something wonky with OS authentication. This isn't really something we can diagnose in the way that Tech Support can. – Vince Apr 3 '19 at 20:29
