ArcGIS 10.2.1 for (Desktop, Engine, Server) Utilities and Telecom Update 2 Patch

Summary

This patch is the second in a series of updates targeting utility and telecom workflows, though it can be beneficial to all users of ArcGIS 10.2.1. The patch targets a number of issues related to the use of schematic diagrams, and also corrects issues with the st_geometry storage type, memory allocation, spatial indexes, performance, and more.

Description

Important Note


March 9, 2015: The ArcGIS for Server on Windows setup is available as a "B" version for download. The ArcGIS for Server Linux setup will not be updated. Users of ArcGIS for Server Linux must install the 10.2.1 version of the ArcGIS for Server Security (January 2015) Patch prior to installing this patch to avoid any installation conflicts.

Introduction


Esri® announces the ArcGIS 10.2.1 for (Desktop, Engine, Server) Utilities and Telecom Update 2 Patch. This patch is the second in a series of updates targeting utility and telecom workflows, though it can be beneficial to all users of ArcGIS 10.2.1. The patch targets a number of issues related to the use of schematic diagrams, and also corrects issues with the st_geometry storage type, memory allocation, spatial indexes, performance, and more. This patch deals specifically with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this Patch.


Issues Addressed with this patch


  • BUG-000081231 - After disconnecting and connecting linear source features from a geometric network and updating the associated schematic diagram, a new schematic ID is generated for that feature and the vertices are removed.
  • BUG-000082028 - Standard editing workflows consume increasing amounts of memory and do not release it after editing has stopped.
  • BUG-000082630 - Versioned Difference Cursor single branch edits invert the "type" of change reported (e.g., Deletes become Inserts, Inserts become Deletes).
  • NIM088321 - User defined spatial index grids are not honored by ArcGIS when using the Add Spatial Index tool, even though the tool runs successfully.
  • NIM096460 - After dropping and rebuilding the geometric network and updating a schematic diagram containing schematic rules, network junction locations are not preserved.
  • NIM097184 - Creating a checkout in a 9.3.1 geodatabase fails with 10.2.1 Desktop.
  • NIM097983 - Optimize the opening of map documents by augmenting the geodatabase schema cache to include properties of the sde metadata.
  • NIM098475 - Spatial indexes are not created when creating a feature class on an ArcSDE 10 database from an ArcGIS Desktop 10.2 client.
  • NIM098196 - Exporting SDE schema using Oracle expdp generates ora-39127, ora-20098 and ora-06512 error about the spatial index created on GDB_items table having the st_grids parameter as commas when Oracle 11gR2 is used.
  • NIM098665 - Making a connection to a non-spatial Oracle database using either a Spatial Database Connection or an OLE Database Connection takes a significantly long time when there is a large amount of objects in the database.
  • NIM099484 - Provide a mechanism to enable instrumentation of memory usage when creating a feature cache in desktop.
  • NIM096111 - Rotating a point after a specific selection workflow on a geometric network rotates and shifts the entire geometric network.
  • NIM100182 - Bad SCHEMATICTID when diagrams get exported. Schematic features associated with GIS features which are not part of the geometric network are exported with "-2" at the end of their SCHEMATICTID.
  • NIM100823 - Rebuild the spatial index on a versioned feature class fails with an SRID mismatch error.
  • NIM100941 - Improve the Performance and Scalability of Creating and Syncing replicas by more efficiently caching database information.
  • NIM101461 - When feature classes with different SRIDs are used in an ST_intersection query, it fails with 'ORA-06530: Reference to uninitialized composite'.
  • NIM101468 - Unable to hide standalone tables using the IWorkspaceExtension.DataDictionaryTableNames method in ArcGIS 10.1 and above.
  • NIM101270 - Recalculating the feature extent on specific datasets returns the following error: "Failed to recalculate extent. The specified coordinate exceeds the valid coordinate range."
  • NIM101376 - ArcGIS for Desktop fails to save the connectivity rules for a specific geometric network.

  • NIM102077 - ArcGIS reports that an Oracle SDELOB or WKB feature class created in a pre-10.1 geodatabase does not have a spatial index when it does exist.
  • NIM102230 - Do not return the Documentation field on joined queries for Geodatabase internal metadata.
  • NIM102846 - When exporting diagrams into another schematic dataset using the Export Schematic Dataset process configured with GUIDs reattachment, the process expects GUIDs for each feature they contain. This is blocking when GUIDs are only missing for a feature class, in particular when this is missing for _Junctions.
  • NIM102848 - Creating a spatial index will pass values gathered from existing enterprise feature classes that may be invalid instead of passing correct values.
  • NIM102883 - When using a newer client (10.1+) against an older SQL server geodatabase (pre-10.1) through an application server connection, creation of a spatial index will fail on GEOMETRY or GEOGRAPHY feature classes with 'This SDE server does not support this client or operation'.
  • NIM102895 - Data exported via a XML workspace does not retain any 4-byte (or greater) characters in the data's attribute table.
  • NIM102996 - After dropping a spatial index on a binary feature class through an application server connection to a pre-10.1 geodatabase in SQL Server, ArcGIS is unable to determine the index is gone.
  • NIM103593 - File Geodatabase lock files should be opened as Read, rather than as Read/Write. This improves feature class/table creation performance.
  • NIM103683 - When script/query/constant attributes are configured on a schematic feature class for which the schematic features are not initialized, the attributes are not updated.
  • NIM103708 - Filter the AUDSYS, OJVMSYS, GSMADMIN_INTERNAL, DVSYS Oracle objects from connection in ArcGIS.

  • NIM104317 - When fetching a network dataset index page, only fetch the pageblob.
  • NIM104321 - MDXT_xxx$% tables show up in ArcCatalog, connected to a 11.2.0.4 or 12.1.0.1 instance, and some are not deleted even when the feature class is deleted.

This patch includes all fixes in the ArcGIS 10.2.1 for (Desktop, Engine, Server) Utilities and Telecom Update 1 Patch.
