ArcSDE 9.0 Service Pack 3

Summary

ESRI announces ArcSDE 9.0 Service Pack 3. Please download and install this required Service Pack at your earliest convenience. This Service Pack contains all the fixes from ArcSDE 9.0 Service Pack 1, Service Pack 2, and some additional performance improvements and maintenance fixes.

Description

Important Note

A CD of this Service Pack is now available for users who experience difficulties downloading the Service Pack from the Web site. Simply fill out the Request a Service Pack CD order form.

Installing the Service Pack

ArcSDE 9.0 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. If you have not yet applied previous service packs, you do not have to do so before installing Service Pack 3 as it is cumulative and contains all fixes from the pervious service packs. If you already have a previous service pack installed, you may apply Service Pack 3 over it to update the required files. Install this Service Pack using your SDE user account.

NOTE: If you connect to ArcSDE 9.0 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 9.0, ArcIMS 9.0, or ArcView GIS 3.3 with DBA 2.1e 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 9.0 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.

  3. Stop your current ArcSDE service.


  4. % sdemon -o shutdown

  5. Extract the specified tar file by typing:


  6. % tar -xvf sde90-sp3-<Database>-<Platform>.tar

  7. Start the installation by typing:


  8. % ./apply_sp_<Platform>_<Database>

    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. (Oracle only) Before upgrading your Oracle instance, you must grant the following additional permissions to the SDE user in Oracle:


  10. ALTER ANY INDEX
    ALTER ANY TABLE
    ANALYZE ANY
    CREATE ANY INDEX
    CREATE ANY PROCEDURE
    CREATE ANY SEQUENCE
    CREATE ANY TRIGGER
    CREATE ANY VIEW
    CREATE SESSION
    DROP ANY INDEX
    DROP ANY TABLE
    DROP ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY PROCEDURE
    DROP ANY SEQUENCE
    EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
    SELECT ANY SEQUENCE
    SELECT ANY TABLE
    UNLIMITED TABLESPACE

    After the upgrade completes, you may revoke the following permissions from the SDE user account:

    ALTER ANY INDEX
    ALTER ANY TABLE
    ANALYZE ANY
    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

  11. To upgrade, run sdesetup<dbms>. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the service. Using Oracle 9i as an example:


  12. % sdesetupora9i -o upgrade –u sde –p sdepassword

  13. Start your service again.


  14. % sdemon -o start

Server Install for Windows


    Windows 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 products are currently installed on your machine, download the ServicePackFinder90.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 Desktop (ArcView, ArcEditor, ArcInfo) Includes the ArcReader fixes for the ArcReader FEATURE.
        ArcGIS Desktop Developer Kit
        ArcGIS Engine Runtime
        ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit
        ArcGIS Server
        ArcGIS Server .NET ADF
        ArcGIS Server Java ADF
        ArcGIS Tutorial Data
        ArcReader standalone
        ArcIMS
        ArcSDE


      NOTE (ArcIMS and ArcGIS Desktop users): If you use ArcIMS 9.0 or ArcGIS Desktop 9.0, you must also install ArcIMS 9.0 Service Pack 3 or ArcGIS 9.0 Service Pack 3. For example, if you use ArcIMS 9.0 and ArcSDE 9.0, install both ArcIMS 9.0 Service Pack 3 and ArcSDE 9.0 Service Pack 3. Since ArcIMS 9.0, ArcSDE 9.0 and the ArcGIS 9.0 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

      NOTE (ArcGIS Server users): If you have ArcGIS Server 9.0 and any other ArcGIS product installed on your machine, we recommend that you install the ArcGIS 9.0 Server Service Pack before installing the remaining Service Packs. Since ArcGIS Server and the ArcGIS 9.0 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

Installation Steps


  1. Make sure you have write access to the ArcSDE installation folder, that no one is using ArcSDE, and that the ArcSDE service is down.


  2. Download the appropriate files to a location other than the ArcSDE installation folder:
  3. DB2  
    ArcSDE-DB2-90sp3.msp 3 MB
    Informix  
    ArcSDE-Informix-90sp3.msp 3 MB
    Oracle 8i  
    ArcSDE-Oracle8i-90sp3.msp 3 MB

    ArcSDE-Oracle9i-90sp3.msp 3 MB
    SQL Server  
    ArcSDE-SQLServer-90sp3.msp 3 MB

  4. Double-click the ArcSDE-<Database>-90sp3.msp to start the install process.


  5. NOTE: If double clicking on the MSP file does not start the Service Pack installation, you can run the Service Pack manually by using the following commands.

      msiexec.exe /p [location of service pack]\ArcSDE-<Database>-90sp3.msp REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus

  6. When Setup starts, follow the instructions on your screen.


  7. (DB2 ONLY) Before upgrading your DB2 instance, you must copy the %SDEHOME%\bin\sdesrvsp.dll to the %DB2TEMPDIR%\function\unfenced folder under your DB2 installation folder.


  8. (Oracle only) Before upgrading your Oracle instance, you must grant the following additional permissions to the SDE user in Oracle:
  9. ALTER ANY INDEX
    ALTER ANY TABLE
    ANALYZE ANY
    CREATE ANY INDEX
    CREATE ANY PROCEDURE
    CREATE ANY SEQUENCE
    CREATE ANY TRIGGER
    CREATE ANY VIEW
    CREATE SESSION
    DROP ANY INDEX
    DROP ANY TABLE
    DROP ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY PROCEDURE
    DROP ANY SEQUENCE
    EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
    SELECT ANY SEQUENCE
    SELECT ANY TABLE
    UNLIMITED TABLESPACE

    After the upgrade completes, you may revoke the following permissions from the SDE user account:

    ALTER ANY INDEX

    CREATE ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY INDEX
    DROP ANY TABLE
    DROP ANY VIEW
    DROP ANY PROCEDURE
    DROP ANY SEQUENCE
    EXECUTE ANY PROCEDURE
    SELECT ANY SEQUENCE

  10. To upgrade, run sdesetup<dbms>. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the service. Using Oracle 9i as an example:

    sdesetupora9i -o upgrade

  11. As the SDE user, run the following command to restart the ArcSDE service:

    sdemon -o start
