ArcSDE 9.0 Oracle Patch

Summary

This patch addresses an ArcSDE for Oracle issue when copying and querying data.

Description

Installing the Patch

ArcSDE 9.0 Service Pack 3 must be installed before you can install this Patch. It is strongly recommended that you back up your database including all previous ArcSDE system tables and user layer data before upgrading your ArcSDE installation. Install this Patch using your SDE user account.

NOTE: If you connect to ArcSDE 9.0 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 9.0, ArcIMS 9.0, or ArcView GIS 3.3 with DBA 2.1e make sure you also see ESRI Products connecting to ArcSDE (Application and Direct Connect connections).

Server Install for UNIX

During installation, you can either save the original 9.0 SP3 files or overwrite them. If you choose to save them, make sure you have enough disk space. The disk space requirements, for each platform, are displayed during the installation process.

  1. Download the appropriate tar file to a location other than $SDEHOME:


  2. Oracle 9i (Use these with Oracle 10g)  
    HP64 sde90-orapatch-ora9i-hp64.tar
    11 MB
    IBM64 sde90-orapatch-ora9i-ibm64.tar
    10 MB
    Linux sde90-orapatch-ora9i-lx.tar
    8 MB
    Solaris sde90-orapatch-ora9i-slrs.tar
    10 MB
    Solaris64 sde90-orapatch-ora9i-slrs64.tar
    11 MB
    Tru64 sde90-orapatch-ora9i-tru64.tar
    15 MB

  3. Stop your current ArcSDE service.


  4. % sdemon -o shutdown

  5. Extract the specified tar file by typing:


  6. % tar -xvf sde90-orapatch-<Database>-<Platform>.tar

  7. Start the installation by typing:


  8. % ./apply_patch_<Platform>_<Database>

    This will start the dialog for the menu-driven installation procedure. Default selections are noted in parentheses ( ). To quit the installation procedure, type 'q' at any time.

  9. Before upgrading your Oracle instance, you must grant the following additional permissions to the SDE user in Oracle:


  10. ALTER ANY INDEX
    ALTER ANY TABLE
    ANALYZE ANY
    CREATE ANY INDEX
    CREATE ANY PROCEDURE
    CREATE ANY SEQUENCE
    CREATE ANY TRIGGER
    CREATE ANY VIEW
    CREATE SESSION
    DROP ANY INDEX
    DROP ANY TABLE
    DROP ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY PROCEDURE
    DROP ANY SEQUENCE
    EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
    SELECT ANY SEQUENCE
    SELECT ANY TABLE
    UNLIMITED TABLESPACE

    After the upgrade completes, you may revoke the following permissions from the SDE user account:

    ALTER ANY INDEX
    ALTER ANY TABLE
    ANALYZE ANY
    CREATE ANY INDEX
    CREATE ANY TRIGGER
    CREATE ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY INDEX
    DROP ANY TABLE
    DROP ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY PROCEDURE
    DROP ANY SEQUENCE
    EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
    SELECT ANY SEQUENCE

  11. To upgrade, run sdesetup<dbms>. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the service. Using Oracle 9i as an example:


  12. % sdesetupora9i -o upgrade –u sde –p sdepassword

  13. Start your service again.


  14. % sdemon -o start

Server Install for Windows


    Windows Installation Notes:

      ArcSDE 9.0 Service Pack 3 must be installed before you install this Patch.

      To find out what products are currently installed on your machine, download the ServicePackFinder.exe utility and run it from your local machine. This utility provides a report detailing which ArcGIS products are currently installed on your machine. This will help determine which product Service Packs you should install on your machine. The report also details which service packs have been installed. The report is displayed when the utility is run and a servicepack.txt log file is created in your temp folder. The Service Pack Finder utility searches for the following ArcGIS products.


        ArcGIS Desktop (ArcView, ArcEditor, ArcInfo) Includes the ArcReader fixes for the ArcReader FEATURE.
        ArcGIS Desktop Developer Kit
        ArcGIS Engine Runtime
        ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit
        ArcGIS Server
        ArcGIS Server .NET ADF
        ArcGIS Server Java ADF
        ArcGIS Tutorial Data
        ArcReader standalone
        ArcIMS
        ArcSDE


      NOTE (ArcIMS and ArcGIS Desktop users): If you use ArcIMS 9.0 or ArcGIS Desktop 9.0, you must also install ArcIMS 9.0 Service Pack 3 or ArcGIS 9.0 Service Pack 3. For example, if you use ArcIMS 9.0 and ArcSDE 9.0, install both ArcIMS 9.0 Service Pack 3 and ArcSDE 9.0 Service Pack 3. Since ArcIMS 9.0, ArcSDE 9.0 and the ArcGIS 9.0 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

      NOTE (ArcGIS Server users): If you have ArcGIS Server 9.0 and any other ArcGIS product installed on your machine, we recommend that you install the ArcGIS 9.0 Server Service Pack before installing the remaining Service Packs. Since ArcGIS Server and the ArcGIS 9.0 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

Installation Steps


  1. Make sure you have write access to the ArcSDE installation folder, that no one is using ArcSDE, and that the ArcSDE service is down.


  2. Download the appropriate files to a location other than the ArcSDE installation folder:
  3. Oracle 9i (Use this with Oracle 10g)  
    sde90-orapatch-ora9i-win.exe 2 MB

  4. Double-click sde90-orapatch-ora9i-win.exe to start the install process.


  5. When Setup starts, follow the instructions on your screen.


  6. Before upgrading your Oracle instance, you must grant the following additional permissions to the SDE user in Oracle:
  7. ALTER ANY INDEX
    ALTER ANY TABLE
    ANALYZE ANY
    CREATE ANY INDEX
    CREATE ANY PROCEDURE
    CREATE ANY SEQUENCE
    CREATE ANY TRIGGER
    CREATE ANY VIEW
    CREATE SESSION
    DROP ANY INDEX
    DROP ANY TABLE
    DROP ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY PROCEDURE
    DROP ANY SEQUENCE
    EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
    SELECT ANY SEQUENCE
    SELECT ANY TABLE
    UNLIMITED TABLESPACE

    After the upgrade completes, you may revoke the following permissions from the SDE user account:

    ALTER ANY INDEX
    ALTER ANY TABLE
    ANALYZE ANY
    CREATE ANY INDEX
    CREATE ANY TRIGGER
    CREATE ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY INDEX
    DROP ANY TABLE
    DROP ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY PROCEDURE
    DROP ANY SEQUENCE
    EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
    SELECT ANY SEQUENCE

  8. To upgrade, run sdesetup<dbms>. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the service. Using Oracle 9i as an example:

    sdesetupora9i -o upgrade

  9. As the SDE user, run the following command to restart the ArcSDE service:

    sdemon -o start

How to identify which Patch is installed


    UNIX

    Any modified UNIX executables (or libraries) being sent out as part of a Patch will return the unique identification number for that fix when checked with the "what" command for UNIX and the "strings" command for Linux. For example, to display the identification string for this Patch on UNIX, type:

      %what gsrvr.static | grep QFE

      QFE-SDE-90-CQ00267309

    Windows

    To check for the presence of a Patch, for each file examine the unique identification information provided (right click, properties, version tab, item name, QFE Version). With only a few exceptions, all files modified as part of a Patch distribution can be uniquely identified in this manner. The identification string for this Patch should read:

      QFE-SDE-90-CQ00267309

Patch Updates
