Hi,

I need direct connect my ArcIMS 9.2 sp6 to ArcSDE 9.3.1. Workgroup GDB.
I read at http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgisserver/9.3/java/index.htm#geodatabases/propert-403844662.htm

"To connect from a 9.2 client to a 9.3 ArcSDE geodatabase, you must apply the latest 9.2 service pack or patch to the client machine."
Also I found at http://resources.arcgis.com/content/patches-and-service-packs?fa=viewPatch&PID=16&MetaID=1504#help

ArcGIS 9.3.1 GDB Direct Connect for 9.2 Clients

I have ArcIMS 9.2 sp6 and I install sde92-931directconnect.zip for ArcGIS Desktop and ArcIMS 9.2.

Now I can connect to ArcSDE 9.3.1 Workgroup from ArcCatalog and ArcMap. But I couldn't create ArcIMS ArcMapImageServer map service for mxd with layers from ArcSDE WG 9.3.1.

I have ERROR0125 in ArcIMS Administrator. I found in sdedc_SQL server.log:
IDBInitialize::Initialize Failed
CAN'T OPEN INSTANCE: sde:sqlserver.
Spatial Engine Connection Failed (-9).
Cannot Get Access to Instance sde:sqlserver

How can I solve this problem?

Thank you
