FAQ: WHAT executables have been removed from the $SDEHOME/bin directory at ArcSDE 8.1?

Question

WHAT executables have been removed from the $SDEHOME/bin directory at ArcSDE 8.1?

Answer

The following executables are obsolete at ArcSDE 8.1 and no longer exist in the $SDEHOME/bin directory:

gdbs - The geodatabase metadata maintenance tool

sdelicserv - Checked out ArcSDE licenses

sderelease - Listed release and upgrade server versions

These executables should not have appeared in the list of executables on pages 74 and 75 of the book Managing ArcSDE Services.

The ArcSDE 8.1 sdesetup* executable incorporated the functionality of the gdbs and sderelease executables.

ArcSDE 8.1 references the ArcSDEServer license. It does not checkout a license. Therefore the sdelicserv executable is no longer required.
