Geodatabase Toolset (GDBT) for ArcCatalog – Now available for 10.0!

I’m pleased to announce that the Geodatabase Toolset (GDBT) for ArcCatalog is now available for 10.0.

You can download it RIGHT HERE!!

What a great month for pleasing announcements!

The GDBT is a popular, unsupported extension to ArcGIS Desktop. It provides a collection of tools that you can use to troubleshoot, monitor, and investigate ArcSDE (enterprise) geodatabases. The GDBT works with geodatabases stored on SQL Server, Oracle, Informix, DB2, or PostgreSQL databases. It fits neatly inside all Hoel Endorsed carry-on baggage and provides a wide variety of information including:

  • The total number of rows in the add and delete tables
  • Users connected to the geodatabase and locked schemas
  • A graphic of the state tree lineage
  • Detailed information of a features class spatial index
  • Parent-child relationships between versions for version management
  • Table and Index Statistics for geodatabase stored in an Oracle database

You can high five other GDBT users on theGeodatabase support forum and post comments and questions for the community.

Now gooooo get it!

Note: The GDBT is an “unsupported” extension so ESRI Technical Support is not available for the toolset.

    What is the plan for releasing a 10.1 or 10.2 version??? ASAP!! PLEASE!!

  4. tlutgen says:

    This works @ 10.1, but it seems it needs to be installed with 10.0 ArcGIS Desktop, then upgrade Desktop to 10.1. I had it running with 10.1 when I upgraded Desktop. Annoyingly, I recently upgraded to Windows 7, loading 10.1 Desktop, and the installer for GDBT will not load (throws an error that it can’t find 10.0). So, I may go through the hassle of uninstall, reinstall to get it – I love this tool. Best part is the graphic versioning tree! Or…..this tool could be updated for 10.1&2 !!

      Well, it worked. There’s an hour that could been avoided with a little update from Mr. Murphy.

      • berdusco says:

        Consider an hour a bonus. I’d have to log a ticket with our suppoert desk to uninstall 10.1. Then I would have to log another ticket to install 10.0. Probably another ticket to install GDBT. Then another ticket to uninstall 10.0. And hopefully, finally a ticket to install 10.1.

        Pretty sure I’d be close to my retirement date by the time I got through it all.

    Is there a plan to release a 10.2 version??? Life is to short to uninstalling and installing versions.

    Please note that the download link above is dead.

    For earlier versions, see

    There is no support forum that I could find at Geonet.

    On 10.1+ if you attempt to install this you will get “ArcGIS 10 Desktop Install not found in registry”

    There are two unpalatable choices here per this thread

    1. Uninstall 10.x, install 10.0, install GDBT, uninstall 10.0, install 10.x
    2. Hack the registry so that the GDBT installer thinks you have 10.0 installed.
    (Remember to change this back to ….10.x!)
