Important Note for AIX ArcSDE

Support for Oracle 11gR2 on IBM AIX begins with ArcSDE 9.3.1 SP2. To perform an install of ArcSDE 9.3.1 SP2 for Oracle11gR2 on AIX do the following:

  1. Install AIX ArcSDE 9.3.1 for Oracle 11g per the ArcSDE 9.3.1 Installation Guide. Do not run the post installation.
  2. Install AIX ArcSDE 9.3.1 SP2 on top of the ArcSDE 9.3.1 installation.
  3. Continue with the ArcSDE post installation instructions in the ArcSDE 9.3.1 Installation Guide.
Note: AIX Oracle 11gR2 is not supported at ArcSDE 9.3.1 nor ArcSDE 9.3.1 SP1.

Installing this Service Pack

ArcSDE 9.3.1 or 9.3.1 Service Pack 1 must be installed before you can install ArcSDE 9.3.1 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.

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.

ArcSDE Server Installation for UNIX

Installation Steps:


During installation, you can either save the original 9.3.1 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.

Install this Service Pack using an administrator account, and then upgrade your geodatabase using your ArcSDE administrator account.

  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 sde931-sp2-<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|ORACLE11G|SQLSERVER|DB2|INFORMIX|POSTGRESQL> -D <database_name> -s <datasource> -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 only applies to Oracle or PostgreSQL users who have the ArcSDE component and the DBMS installed on separate servers. All other users proceed to the next step.)


  16. For Oracle:

    If you have the ArcSDE component and Oracle installed on separate servers, there are three shared libraries used by EXTPROC that must be copied to the Oracle server. Check the list of files altered by this patch. If any of the following files are on this list, new versions of the file must be copied to the Oracle server. Be sure the files copied to the Oracle server are designed to run on the operating system of the Oracle server. See the ArcSDE for Oracle installation guide for instructions.

    If the file is not in the list, new versions of it do not need to be copied to the Oracle server.


    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_shapelib st_shapelib.dll (Windows), libst_shapelib.so (Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium), libst_shapelib.sl (HP-UX PA-RISC), libst_shapelib_64.so (IBM)
    Projection Engine pe.dll (Windows), libpe.so (Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium), libpe.sl (HP-UX PA-RISC), libpe_64.so (IBM)
    Geometry sg.dll (Windows), libsg.so (Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium), libsg.sl (HP-UX PA-RISC), libsg_64.so (IBM)

    For PostgreSQL:

    If you have the ArcSDE component and PostgreSQL installed on separate servers, there are three libraries that must be copied to the PostgreSQL server. Check the list of files altered by this patch. If any of the following files are on this list, new versions of the file must be copied to the PostgreSQL server. Be sure the files copied to the PostgreSQL server are designed to run on the operating system of the PostgreSQL server. See the ArcSDE for PostgreSQL installation guide for instructions.

    If the file is not in the list, new versions of it do not need to be copied to the PostgreSQL server.

    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_geometry st_geometry (Linux and Windows)
    Projection Engine pe.dll (Windows), libpe.so (Linux)
    Geometry sg.dll (Windows), libsg.so (Linux)

  17. If you have more than one ArcSDE geodatabase, perform steps 2 through 8 for each of your ArcSDE services.

ArcSDE Server Installation for Windows

Installation Steps


  1. Install this Service Pack using an administrator account , then upgrade your geodatabase using your ArcSDE administrator account.

    c:\msiexec.exe /p [location of service pack]\SDE931sp2-<Database>.msp
  8. When the Setup installation wizard starts, follow the instructions on your screen.


  9. DB2 z OS users please click this link for further instructions. All others proceed to the next step.

ESRI Products connecting to ArcSDE (application server and direct connections)

If you connect to ArcSDE 9.3.1 Service Pack 2 from ArcGIS 9.3.1, you must install the corresponding 9.3.1 Service Pack 2 for your client product. The client updates contained in ArcSDE 9.3.1 Service Pack 2 are also included in ArcGIS 9.3.1 Service Pack 2. This is necessary to maintain version compatibility between the client and the server applications.

If you make a direct connection from a 9.3.1 client to an earlier release ArcSDE geodatabase, you need to install the ArcGIS Pre-9.3 geodatabase direct connect drivers.

If you connect to ArcSDE 9.3.1 using ArcInfo Workstation 9.3.1 please follow the steps below to install this Service Pack to your ArcInfo Workstation 9.3.1 software installation location:
