A CD of this Service Pack is 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 9.1 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 the previous service pack, you do not have to do so before installing Service Pack 2 as it is cumulative and contains all fixes from the pervious service pack. If you already have a previous service pack installed, you may apply Service Pack 2 over it to update the required files. Install this Service Pack using your SDE user account.

REQUIRED INSTALL STEP: If you connect to ArcSDE 9.1 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 9.1, ArcIMS 9.1, or ArcView GIS 3.3 with DBA 2.1g make sure you also see ESRI Products connecting to ArcSDE (Application and Direct Connect connections).

Server Install for UNIX

 

UNIX Installation Notes:

To find out what ArcGIS products are currently installed on your machine, download and extract the PatchFinder.tar and run PatchFinder utility from your local machine. This utility provides a report detailing which ArcGIS products and which service packs have been installed. The PatchFinder utility searches for the following ArcGIS products.

ArcGIS Engine Runtime
ArcGIS Reader
ArcGIS Server
ArcIMS
ArcInfo Workstation
ArcSDE

Extract the tar file by typing:

% tar xvf PatchFinder.tar

Run the utility by typing:

% ./PatchFinder

 

Installation Steps:
 

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you've previously installed ArcSDE 9.1 General Update Patch 2 you only need to run steps 1, 3 and 4. This will ensure that the ESRI Patch reporting information is properly updated.

During installation, you can either save the original 9.1 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.

    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.

     
  3. Extract the specified tar file by typing:

    % tar -xvf sde91-sp2-<Database>-<Platform>.tar

  4. Start the installation by typing:

    % ./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.

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

    ALTER ANY INDEX

    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


    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 (for details on using the sdesetup<dbms> command for your database, please go to the admin command guide under the %SDEHOME%\documentation folder for more information on using this command):

    % sdesetupora9i -o upgrade –u sde –p <SDE_Admin_password>

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 ServicePackFinder91.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 9.1 or ArcGIS Desktop 9.1, you must also install ArcIMS 9.1 Service Pack 2 or ArcGIS 9.1 Service Pack 2 . For example, if you use ArcIMS 9.1 and ArcSDE 9.1, install both ArcIMS 9.1 Service Pack 2 and ArcSDE 9.1 Service Pack 2. Since ArcIMS 9.1, ArcSDE 9.1 and the ArcGIS 9.1 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 9.1 and any other ArcGIS product installed on your machine, we recommend that you install the ArcGIS 9.1 Server Service Pack before installing the remaining Service Packs. Since ArcGIS Server and the ArcGIS 9.1 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

NOTE (ArcSDE for SQL Server users): If you plan to upgrade your database to SQL Server 2005, there are certain post installation steps that must be performed manually that are outlined in the following KB article: HowTo:  Manual post-installation of ArcSDE 9.1 for SQL server 2005 - single database model.
