Connecting to an existing BIS geodatabase connection (Bathymetry Solution)
You may find that your bathymetry data would be better managed in multiple BIS geodatabases. You can manage connections to BIS geodatabases with the Manage Connections tool.
The Manage Connections tool lists the BIS geodatabases that you are currently managing and displays their BIS settings information. In the Manage Connections dialog box, you can activate a particular BIS geodatabase, remove a BIS geodatabase from your management list, and connect to a BIS geodatabase stored locally or on your network. The tool recognizes the ArcSDE and file geodatabase types.
