I'd be quite careful with this - and would ask why you want it. If the
geodatabase layer is registered "normally" by ArcCatalog the objected
will be linked to a sequence (oracle) or identity table (sql server) so
if you want to supply your own object ids and then you use esri tools to
add more records the object ids generated by esri will be too low unless
you modify the sequence as well.
If you only ever want to apply your own object ids you need to alter the
registration of the table using the sde command sdetable -o alter_reg
and tell it that it has a user maintained object id. However having done
this you ALWAYS need to supply objectid values which makes things like
editing in ArcMap interesting!

Subject: [fme] ESRI Geodatabase Writing ObjectID
I thought this would be relatively simple thing to do, create my own
ObjectID when writing to a feature class, i.e. pass an attribute to the
ObjectID, as long as it is a unique integer (no null values)??
