NOTE: Applies to geodatabases created with an ArcGIS Server Enterprise license only

You will first create your database and install the ArcSDE component of ArcGIS Server Enterprise. When your database software is installed, the database created, and the ArcSDE geodatabase configured, you are ready to set up your client machines.

You must configure each client machine from which you want to make a direct connection to the geodatabase. The steps you follow to set up a client machine to connect directly to an ArcSDE geodatabase on each supported database management system (DBMS) are detailed in this topic. See the appropriate topic for your DBMS.
