||We have ArcSDE 9.1 and the metadata for all the elements has been created using ArcCatalog 9.2 and 9.3. The metadata was stored in the Esri-defined XML format.
The problem is that when someone with administrative privileges connects to ArcSDE using ArcCatalog 9.3.1 and visualize a feature class the xml stored changes and it not able to return to the previous format:
-The XML declaration disappeared.
-The element Esri is different, the element MetaID is not created.
- It is not able to visualize thumbnails and it is not also able to create new ones.
We need to have access to the element MetaID, and create thumbnails. Has anyone else found this problem?
-Is this a bug related to ArGIS 9.3.1? or Is this a problem of 9.3.1 connecting with arcsde 9.1?
Thank you very much
