ArcSDE 9.2 Oracle Binary and Lob Type Spatial View Patch

Published: May 2, 2008

Summary

Spatial views with ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 5 do not work properly. Spatial views are created with the sdetable -o create_view command with the spatial column of the subject feature class included in the view definition. With ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 5, in conjunction with ArcGIS 9.2 and ArcIMS 9.2, features in a SDEBINARY or SDELOB feature class in the spatial view will not display when zooming. The features are still in the feature class, they just don’t display.

Description

ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 5 must be installed before you can install this Patch. 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. Install this Patch using your SDE user account.

REQUIRED INSTALL STEP: If you connect to ArcSDE 9.2 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 9.2, ArcIMS 9.2, or ArcView GIS 3.3 with DBA 2.1f make sure you also see ESRI Products connecting to ArcSDE (Application and Direct Connect connections).

  2. Stop your current ArcSDE service.

    % 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.

  3. Extract the specified tar file by typing:

    % tar -xvf sde92-spatialview-<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
    • 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
  6. To upgrade, run sdesetup. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the service. Please go to the admin command guide under the %SDEHOME%\documentation folder for more information on using this command:
  7. %sdesetup -o upgrade -d <ORACLE9I|ORACLE10G|SQLSERVER|DB2|INFORMIX> –u <DB_Admin_User> –p <DB_Admin_password>

    (Oracle only) 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
  8. Start your service again.

    % sdemon -o start

  9. Only for users who have Oracle and ArcSDE installed on separate machines.
  10. If you are installing ArcSDE on a different server than Oracle, you must copy the shared libraries used by EXTPROC to the Oracle server. These libraries include st_shapelib plus the Geometry library and the Projection Engine library. (The names of these files vary depending on what operating system (OS) you are using.) Be sure the files copied to the Oracle server are designed to run on the operating system of the Oracle server. For example, if ArcSDE is installed on a Linux machine, but Oracle is installed on a Solaris machine, the library files you copy to the Oracle server must be for Solaris. To get the files for different operating system, you can install the software files of the ArcSDE component on the Oracle server, creating the SDEHOME files, and delete everything but the three required library files.

    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_shapelib st_shapelib.dll, libst_shapelib.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)
    Projection Engine pe.dll, libpe.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)
    Geometry sg.dll, libsg.so (.sl for HP, _64.so for IBM64)

    These files can be found in the bin (Windows) or lib (UNIX/Linux) directory of SDEHOME after you've installed the ArcSDE component. You can copy these files to the %ORACLE_HOME%\lib (Windows) or $ORACLE_HOME/lib (UNIX/Linux) directory on the Oracle server, which is the default location that Oracle looks in for shared libraries. Or, you can leave these files where they were installed or move them into any directory that is accessible to the user that owns ORACLE_HOME.

  11. If you have more than one ArcSDE service, perform steps 1 through 8 for each of your ArcSDE services.

Server Install for Windows

  • Windows Installation Notes:

    • It is important to keep all versions of ArcGIS products installed on the same machine in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

      To find out what products are currently installed on your machine, download the ServicePackFinder92.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 ArcReader
      • ArcGIS Desktop (ArcView, ArcEditor, ArcInfo) Includes the ArcReader fixes for the ArcReader FEATURE.
        • ArcGIS Desktop Developer Kit for the Microsoft .NET Framework, VB6, VBA and Visual C++
        • ArcGIS Engine Developer Kit for C++, the Java Platform, the Microsoft .NET Framework, VB6 and Visual C++
        • ArcGIS Engine Runtime
        • ArcGIS Server for the Microsoft .NET Framework
        • ArcGIS Server for the Java Platform
        • ArcGIS Server Web ADF Runtime for the Microsoft .NET Framework
        • ArcIMS
        • ArcIMS Web ADF for the Microsoft .NET Framework
        • ArcIMS Web ADF for the Java Platform
        • ArcSDE

      NOTE (ArcIMS and ArcGIS Desktop users): If you use ArcIMS 9.2 or ArcGIS Desktop 9.2, you must also install ArcIMS 9.2 Service Pack 5 or ArcGIS 9.2 Service Pack 5 . For example, if you use ArcIMS 9.2 and ArcSDE 9.2, install both ArcIMS 9.2 Service Pack 5 and ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 5. Since ArcIMS 9.2, ArcSDE 9.2 and the ArcGIS 9.2 products share common DLLs, it is important to keep the software release versions in sync to avoid any software conflicts.

Installation Steps

  1. Make sure you have write access to the ArcSDE installation folder, that no one is using ArcSDE, and that the ArcSDE service is down.

    NOTE: If you do not shut down the ArcSDE service before installing this Service Pack, you will be prompted and required to reboot your server machine in order to successfully complete the Service Pack installation.

  2. Download the appropriate files to a location other than the ArcSDE installation folder:

  3. Double-click sde92-spatialview-<Database>-win.exe to start the install process.
  4. When Setup starts, follow the instructions on your screen.

    • SELECT ANY SEQUENCE
    • SELECT ANY TABLE
    • UNLIMITED TABLESPACE
  6. To upgrade, run sdesetup. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the service. Please go to the admin command guide under the %SDEHOME%\documentation folder for more information on using this command:
  7. c:\ sdesetup -o upgrade -d <ORACLE9I|ORACLE10G|SQLSERVER|DB2|INFORMIX> –u <DB_Admin_User> –p <DB_Admin_password>
    (Oracle only) 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

  8. As the SDE user, run the following command to restart the ArcSDE service:
    c:\sdemon -o start
  9. Only for users who have Oracle and ArcSDE installed on separate machines.
  10. If you are installing ArcSDE on a different server than Oracle, you must copy the shared libraries used by EXTPROC to the Oracle server. These libraries include st_shapelib plus the Geometry library and the Projection Engine library. (The names of these files vary depending on what operating system (OS) you are using.) Be sure the files copied to the Oracle server are designed to run on the operating system of the Oracle server. For example, if ArcSDE is installed on a Windows machine, but Oracle is installed on a Solaris machine, the library files you copy to the Oracle server must be for Solaris. To get the files for different operating system, you can install the software files of the ArcSDE component on the Oracle server, creating the SDEHOME files, and delete everything but the three required library files.
