Description

Issues Addressed with this Patch

    Oracle

    NIM007057 - Using the option "“Compress all edits in the Default version into the base table" when unregistering as versioned can corrupt the table.

Installing the Patch

ArcSDE 9.2 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 9.2 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 9.2 or ArcIMS 9.2 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 9.2 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
    HP64 sde92-versionpatch-ora9i-hp64.tar
    10 MB
    IBM64 sde92-versionpatch-ora9i-ibm64.tar
    9 MB
    Linux sde92-versionpatch-ora9i-lx.tar
    7 MB
    Solaris64 sde92-versionpatch-ora9i-slrs64.tar
    10 MB
    Tru64 sde92-versionpatch-ora9i-tru64.tar
    11 MB
    Oracle 10gR2
    HP64 sde92-versionpatch-ora10g-hp64.tar
    10 MB
    IBM64 sde92-versionpatch-ora10g-ibm64.tar
    9 MB
    Linux sde92-versionpatch-ora10g-lx.tar
    7 MB
    Solaris64 sde92-versionpatch-ora10g-slrs64.tar
    10 MB

  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 sde92-versionpatch-<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. 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

    DROP ANY TABLE
    DROP ANY VIEW
    DROP PUBLIC SYNONYM
    EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
    SELECT ANY SEQUENCE
    SELECT ANY TABLE
    UNLIMITED TABLESPACE

  11. To upgrade, run sdesetup. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the service. Please go to the admin command guide under the %SDEHOME%\documentation folder for more information on using this command:


  12. % sdesetup -o upgrade -d <ORACLE9I|ORACLE10G> -u sde -p <SDE_Admin_password>

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

    ANALYZE ANY

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

How to identify which Patch is installed


    UNIX

    To find out what ArcGIS products are currently installed on your machine, download and extract the PatchFinder.tar and run PatchFinder utility from your local machine. This utility provides a report detailing which ArcGIS products and which service packs have been installed. The PatchFinder utility searches for the following ArcGIS products.


      ArcGIS Engine Runtime
      ArcGIS Reader
      ArcGIS Server
      ArcIMS
      ArcInfo Workstation
      ArcSDE

    Extract the tar file by typing:


    % tar xvf PatchFinder.tar

    Run the utility by typing:


    % ./PatchFinder

    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:

      CR45176
