Installing this Service Pack

Windows, Unix and Linux Installation Notes:

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


  • This Service Pack should be installed as the ArcGIS or ArcIMS product owner, i.e. the user owning the installation.


  • ArcSDE and ArcGIS Desktop users: If you use ArcIMS 9.3.1 and ArcSDE 9.3.1 or ArcGIS Desktop 9.3.1 , you should also install ArcSDE 9.3.1 Service Pack 2 or ArcGIS 9.3.1 Service Pack 2. For example, if you use ArcIMS 9.3.1 and ArcSDE 9.3.1, install both ArcIMS 9.3.1 Service Pack 2 and ArcSDE 9.3.1 Service Pack 2. Since ArcIMS 9.3.1, ArcSDE 9.3.1 and the ArcGIS 9.3.1 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

Installation Steps for ArcIMS on Windows

ArcIMS 9.3.1 or 9.3.1 Service Pack 1 must be installed before you can install Service Pack 2. Service Pack 2 is cumulative and contains the fixes from all previous 9.3.1 patches and Service Packs. If you have a previous patch or Service Pack installed, you may apply Service Pack 2 over it to update the required files.

  1. From your Services control panel, stop the ArcIMS Tasker, ArcIMS Monitor, and ArcIMS Application Server (in that order).
  2. Double-click the ArcIMS931sp2.msp (58 MB) to start the install process. This executable will take some time to examine your current ArcIMS install during the initializing stage. If double clicking the EXE file does not start the Service Pack installation, you can run the Service Pack manually by using the following command:
    msiexec.exe /p [location of Update]\ArcIMS931sp2.msp REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus
  3. When Setup starts, follow the instructions on your screen.
  4. After the Setup has finished, stop the Web Server and Servlet Engine and then run the ArcIMS Post Installation. The post installation setup can be run from Start > Programs > ArcGIS > ArcIMS > ArcIMS Post Installation.
    If you have customized directories or files, please cut and paste them to a back-up location prior to running the Post Install. Remember to replace any customized files after running the post-install with the backed-up/original files.
    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. Remember to replace any customized files after running the post-install with the backed-up/original files.

      \aimscsw
      \aimscsw.war
      \esriadmin
      \esriadmin.war
      \wfsconnector
      \wfsconnector.war
  5. In the Post Install, choose the Custom Install option
  6. Check the box for ArcIMS Configuration
  7. Check the box for Web Server – Servlet Engine Configuration
  8. Check the box for ArcIMS JRE Configuration for Author, Designer, and Administration Tools.
    In the ArcIMS JRE Configuration dialog no changes are necessary, simply keep the defaults and click Next.
  9. Uncheck all other options.
  10. Follow the prompts as explained in the ArcIMS Installation Guide and finish the Post Installation.
  11. Note: You will need to follow the uninstallation procedure found in the ArcIMS Install guide to remove deployed ESRI war files from your web-server/servlet engine before re-deployment. If your Web Server is not available as a selection in the Post Installation, please follow the manual instructions found in the ArcIMS Installation Guide to re-configure your web-server/servlet engine and to re-deploy ESRI war files. The war files that have been updated are listed below:

        \aimscsw
        \aimscsw.war
        \esriadmin
        \esriadmin.war
        \wfsconnector
        \wfsconnector.war
  12. The post install will start the ArcIMS Application Server, ArcIMS Monitor and ArcIMS Tasker services. You may need to restart any additional ArcIMS services that may have been stopped for the install.

Installation Steps for ArcIMS on UNIX/Linux

ArcIMS 9.3.1 or 9.3.1 Service Pack 1 must be installed before you can install Service Pack 2. Service Pack 2 is cumulative and contains the fixes from all previous 9.3.1 patches and Service Packs. If you have a previous patch or Service Pack installed, you may apply Service Pack 2 over it to update the required files

  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 Update page for UNIX/Linux. (e.g. the aimsmeta.properties, esriadmin.properties, Esrimap_prop files.)


  5. Extract the tar file ims931-sp2-<platform>.tar by typing:
    % tar -xvf ims931-sp2-<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 Update 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. Remember to replace any customized files after running the post-install with the backed-up/original files.

      \aimscsw
      \aimscsw.war
      \esriadmin
      \esriadmin.war
      \wfsconnector
      \wfsconnector.war
    Note: You will need to follow the uninstallation procedure found in the ArcIMS Install guide to remove deployed ESRI war files from your web-server/servlet engine before re-deployment. If your Web Server is not available as a selection in the Post Installation, please follow the manual instructions found in the ArcIMS Installation Guide to re-configure your web-server/servlet engine and to re-deploy ESRI war files.

  11. Extract the ims931-sp2-mapsrvr-<platform>.tar:

    %tar xvf ims931-sp2-mapsrvr-<platform>.tar

  12. Before running ArcIMS 9.3.1 Service Pack 2 ArcMap Server applypatch you must:
    • Verify there is no running Xvfb or Xsun process.
    • Remove any locks on Xvfb or Xsun if it exists.

  13. Verify there is no existing Xvfb or Xsun process running.
    % ps -ef | grep Xvfb
  14. If Xvfb is running, kill the process using the Process ID of Xvfb.
    % kill -9 <pid of Xvfb>
  15. Verify there is no existing lock on Xvfb by checking the following locations:
    /tmp/.X7-lock (Linux)
    /tmp/.X11-unix/X7 (optional, exists on some SuSE machines)
    /tmp/.X11-unix/X7= (optional, exists on some Redhat machines)
    /tmp/.username-X11-unix/X7 (Solaris) where username is the owner of the ArcIMS installation.
    /tmp/.username-X11-pipe/X7 (Solaris) where username is the owner of the ArcIMS installation.
