Installing this Service Pack

Windows Installation Notes:

It is important to keep all versions of ArcGIS products installed on the same machine in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

To find out what products are currently installed on your machine, download the ServicePackFinder92.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 ArcReader
    ArcGIS Desktop (ArcView, ArcEditor, ArcInfo) Includes the ArcReader fixes for the ArcReader FEATURE.
    ArcGIS Desktop Developer Kit for the Microsoft .NET Framework, VB6, VBA and Visual C++
    ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit for C++, the Java Platform, the Microsoft .NET Framework, VB6 and Visual C++
    ArcGIS Engine Runtime
    ArcGIS Server for the Microsoft .NET Framework
    ArcGIS Server for the Java Platform
    ArcGIS Server Web ADF Runtime for the Microsoft .NET Framework
    ArcIMS
    ArcIMS Web ADF for the Microsoft .NET Framework
    ArcIMS Web ADF for the Java Platform
    ArcSDE

NOTE (ArcSDE and ArcGIS Desktop users): If you use ArcSDE 9.2 or ArcGIS Desktop 9.2, you must also install ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 4 or ArcGIS 9.2 Service Pack 4. For example, if you use ArcIMS 9.2 and ArcSDE 9.2, install both ArcIMS 9.2 Service Pack 4 and ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 4. Since ArcIMS 9.2, ArcSDE 9.2 and the ArcGIS 9.2 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

UNIX/Linux Installation Notes

It is important to keep the all versions of ArcGIS products installed on a machine in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

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 ArcReader
    ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit for C++
    ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit for the Java Platform
    ArcGIS Engine Runtime
    ArcGIS Server for the Java Platform
    ArcIMS
    ArcIMS Web ADF for the Java Platform

Installation Steps for ArcIMS on UNIX/Linux

Note: This service pack should be installed as the ArcGIS Server owner, i.e. the user owning the installation.

ArcIMS 9.2 must be installed before you can install this Service Pack.

  1. (IBM AIX only) Stop the ArcIMS Tasker, ArcIMS Monitor, and ArcIMS Application Server (in that order) or use the script $AIMSHOME/qs_scripts/stop_arcims.
  2. Note: While the applypatch command will stop and start the ArcIMS services as it runs for all platforms, it cannot run the slibclean command for the IBM-AIX platform. Therefore, it is required that IBM users stop the services in this step.
  3. (IBM 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

  4. Back up any customized files within your ArcIMS installation if they are listed in the Files Installed by this Service Pack page for UNIX/Linux. (e.g. the aimsmeta.properties, esriadmin.properties, Esrimap_prop files.)


  5. Extract the tar file ims92-sp4-<platform>.tar by typing:
    % tar -xvf ims92-sp4-<platform>.tar
  6. Start the installation by typing:
    % ./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.
  7. Note: The applypatch command will start the ArcIMS Application Server, ArcIMS Monitor, and ArcIMS Tasker (in that order).

  8. To finish the ArcIMS service pack install run the <Path to ArcIMS Install>/tools/SetupArcIMS_PostInstall to propogate updated jar files to your JRE/JDK locations.

  9. The Post Installation should include running the <Path to ArcIMS Install>/tools/SetupArcIMS_WebConfig as the root user in order to redeploy the war files that have been updated.
  10. TOMCAT USERS ONLY: Stop the Tomcat processes, then navigate to <Tomcat Installation Directory>\webapps. If any of the following directories and files exist, please move them to a backup location prior to running the Post Install and Web Configuration. These must be removed from the webapps directory.
