I have an Enterprise geodatabase (9.3) on Microsoft SQL Server 2008. I am trying to export this to file/personal geodatabase and I get an error exporting one of my feature dataset.

export failed: failed to open database. This may not be the database your application recognizes or the file maybe corrupt

I was able to export correctly just few days back and I am suddenly facing this problem.

What could be the possible problem?

  • I was using 9.3 before my sixth-grader was born. This is an extremely elderly installation. It's quite possible it just failed. – Vince Aug 28 '19 at 11:23
