When making an SDE layer visible in ArcIMS Author, the layer does not display. If Author's Message Console is turned on (View > Message Level is set to All), the following error is displayed:
SE_COORD_OUT_OF_BOUNDS: The specified coordinate exceeds the valid coordinate range
Features in the SDE layer are extending beyond the defined extent envelope of the SDE layer.
If you are getting this error, the following two SDE commands will likely display different extent envelope values:
> sdelayer -o describe_long
> sdelayer -o stats
> sdelayer -o alter -E calc
