Installing the Service Pack

Since this Service Pack replaces several ArcSDE 8.3 files, ArcSDE 8.3 must be installed before you can install this Service Pack. 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 Service Pack using your SDE user account.

During installation, you can either save the original 8.3 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.

NOTE: If you connect to ArcSDE 8.3 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 8.3, ArcIMS 4.0.1, or ArcView GIS 3.3 with DBA 2.1e make sure you also see ESRI Products connecting to ArcSDE (Application and Direct Connect connections).

Identifying QFE files on your machine

    UNIX

    Any modified UNIX executables (or libraries) being sent out as part of a Quick Fix will return the unique identification number for that fix when checked with the "what" command for UNIX and the "strings" command for Linux. For example, to display the identification string for this Service Pack on UNIX, type:

    %what giomgr | grep QFE

    QFE-SDE-83-CQ00207235

    Windows

    To check for the presence of Quick Fixes, examine the unique identification information by a (right click, properties, version tab) action under Explorer. With only a few exceptions, all files modified as part of a QFE distribution can be uniquely identified in this manner. Under Windows 2000, select 'Product Version' under the 'Item name' column to see the unique identifier.
