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