ArcSDE 9.2 Connection Performance and Geodatabase Repair Patch

Summary

This patch addresses two different issues: It improves connection performance to an ArcSDE geodatabase under certain conditions and adds functionality to the sdegdbrepair utility.

Description


Introduction

The ArcSDE 9.2 Connection Performance and Geodatabase Repair Patch is to be applied to ArcSDE and ArcSDE clients that already have 9.2 Service Pack 6 installed.

The patch may improve performance when connecting to an ArcSDE geodatabase from ArcGIS Desktop or when using the Add Data dialog box in ArcMap. For more information on what was specifically fixed related to connection performance, see technical article 35699.

This patch also offers additional functionality on the sdegdbrepair utility, including the detection and repair of specific states that are not pointed to by a version, and detection and repair of cases for which the deletes table is potentially missing specific entries. To learn how to use the sdegdbrepair utility, read the updated sdegdbrepair syntax and instructions.

Installing the Patch

ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 6 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 an administrator account.

REQUIRED INSTALL STEP: If you connect to ArcSDE 9.2 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 9.2, ArcIMS 9.2, 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 9.2 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.

ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 6 must be installed on the server and your client applications before you install this Patch.

    Note: This patch has been superceded by the ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 6 Compress with Concurrent Editors Patch. It addresses all the issues from this Patch as well as the newer issues addressed in the ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 6 Compress with Concurrent Editors Patch.

  3. Stop your current ArcSDE service if one is running.
  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-cpgrpatch-<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. (This step is for Oracle only, all other DBMS skip to the next step)
    Before running "sdesetup -o upgrade", you must grant the following additional permissions to the SDE user in Oracle:
    • ALTER ANY INDEX
      ALTER ANY TABLE
      ANALYZE ANY
      CREATE ANY INDEX
      CREATE ANY PROCEDURE
      CREATE ANY SEQUENCE
      CREATE ANY TRIGGER
      CREATE ANY VIEW
      CREATE INDEXTYPE
      CREATE LIBRARY
      CREATE OPERATOR
      CREATE PROCEDURE
      CREATE PUBLIC SYNONYM
      CREATE SESSION
      CREATE SEQUENCE
      CREATE TABLE
      CREATE TRIGGER
      CREATE TYPE
      DROP ANY INDEX
      DROP ANY PROCEDURE
      DROP ANY SEQUENCE
      DROP ANY TABLE
      DROP ANY VIEW
      DROP PUBLIC SYNONYM
      EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
      SELECT ANY SEQUENCE
      SELECT ANY TABLE
      UNLIMITED TABLESPACE
  10. To upgrade, run sdesetup. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the geodatabase. Please go to the admin command guide under the %SDEHOME%\documentation folder for more information on using this command:
  11. %sdesetup -o upgrade -d <ORACLE9I|ORACLE10G|SQLSERVER|DB2|INFORMIX> –u <DB_Admin_User> –p <DB_Admin_password>

  12. (This step is for Oracle only, all other DBMS skip to the next step)
    After the upgrade completes, you may revoke the following permissions from the SDE user account:

      ANALYZE ANY
      ALTER ANY INDEX
      ALTER ANY TABLE
      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
      CREATE INDEXTYPE
      CREATE LIBRARY
      CREATE OPERATOR
      CREATE TYPE
  13. Restart your service.
  14. % sdemon -o start

  15. (This step is for Oracle users who have Oracle and ArcSDE installed on separate machines only, all other DBMS skip to the next step)
  16. If you are installing ArcSDE on a different server than Oracle, you must copy the shared libraries used by EXTPROC to the Oracle server. These libraries include st_shapelib plus the Geometry library and the Projection Engine library. (The names of these files vary depending on what operating system (OS) you are using.) Be sure the files copied to the Oracle server are designed to run on the operating system of the Oracle server. For example, if ArcSDE is installed on a Linux machine, but Oracle is installed on a Solaris machine, the library files you copy to the Oracle server must be for Solaris. To get the files for different operating system, you can install the software files of the ArcSDE component on the Oracle server, creating the SDEHOME files, and delete everything but the three required library files.

    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_shapelib st_shapelib.dll, libst_shapelib.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)
    Projection Engine pe.dll, libpe.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)
    Geometry sg.dll, libsg.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)

    These files can be found in the bin (Windows) or lib (UNIX/Linux) directory of SDEHOME after you've installed the ArcSDE component. You can copy these files to the %ORACLE_HOME%\lib (Windows) or $ORACLE_HOME/lib (UNIX/Linux) directory on the Oracle server, which is the default location that Oracle looks in for shared libraries. Or, you can leave these files where they were installed or move them into any directory that is accessible to the user that owns ORACLE_HOME.

  17. If you have ArcSDE installed on more than one server, perform steps 1 through 8 for each one.
    Note:If you have multiple geodatabases on the same server, you only have to install the patch once on the server, but you must perform steps 5 through 8 to upgrade each of the geodatabases and restart their corresponding services if services exist.

      SELECT ANY SEQUENCE
      CREATE INDEXTYPE
      CREATE LIBRARY
      CREATE OPERATOR
      CREATE TYPE
  10. As the ArcSDE administrative user, run the following command to restart the ArcSDE service:

    c:\sdemon -o start

  11. (This step is for Oracle users who have Oracle and ArcSDE installed on separate machines only, all other DBMS skip to the next step)
  12. If you are installing ArcSDE on a different server than Oracle, you must copy the shared libraries used by EXTPROC to the Oracle server. These libraries include st_shapelib plus the Geometry library and the Projection Engine library. (The names of these files vary depending on what operating system (OS) you are using.) Be sure the files copied to the Oracle server are designed to run on the operating system of the Oracle server. For example, if ArcSDE is installed on a Windows machine, but Oracle is installed on a Solaris machine, the library files you copy to the Oracle server must be for Solaris. To get the files for different operating system, you can install the software files of the ArcSDE component on the Oracle server, creating the SDEHOME files, and delete everything but the three required library files.

    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_shapelib st_shapelib.dll, libst_shapelib.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)
    Projection Engine pe.dll, libpe.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)
    Geometry sg.dll, libsg.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)
  13. If you have ArcSDE installed on more than one server, perform steps 1 through 8 for each one.
    Note:If you have multiple geodatabases on the same server, you only have to install the patch once on the server, but you must perform steps 5 through 8 to upgrade each of the geodatabases and restart their corresponding services if services exist.

How to identify which Patch is installed


    UNIX

      To find out what ArcGIS products are currently installed on your machine, copy the PatchFinder.tar utility to your machine and run it 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 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
        ArcInfo Workstation
        ArcReader
        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 File version information (right click, properties, version tab). With only a few exceptions, all files modified as part of a Patch distribution can be uniquely identified in this manner. The File version for this Patch should read:

        9.2.6.1278

    Service Pack Updates

    Check Online Support Center periodically for the availability of additional Service Packs. New information about this Service Pack will be posted here.
