Summary

This Patch contains performance improvements and maintenance fixes. All users should download and install this required Patch as soon as possible

Description


Installing the Patch

ArcSDE 9.1 Service Pack 1 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.

REQUIRED INSTALL STEP: If you connect to ArcSDE 9.1 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 9.1, ArcIMS 9.1, or ArcView GIS 3.3 with DBA 2.1g 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 9.1 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.

  3. Stop your current ArcSDE service.


  4. % sdemon -o shutdown

    NOTE (AIX only): You must remove any inactive libraries that are loaded into memory before proceeding to the next step. Not doing so will result in an installation error. To remove them, as ROOT user, type:

    # /usr/sbin/slibclean

    (Optional) To list the libraries loaded into memory, as ROOT user, type:

    # /usr/sbin/genkld

    For further information on the slibclean and genkld commands please refer to your AIX system administrator documentation.

  5. Extract the specified tar file by typing:


  6. % tar -xvf sde91-genpatch2-<Database>-<Platform>.tar

  7. Start the installation by typing:


  8. % ./applypatch

    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. (Oracle only) 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

    CREATE ANY INDEX
    CREATE ANY TRIGGER
    CREATE ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY INDEX
    DROP ANY TABLE

    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

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-91-CQ00288730

    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-91-CQ00288730
