ArcSDE 9.2 Oracle Patch

Published: January 26, 2007

Summary

This patch contains a fix for users who will be upgrading to ArcSDE 9.2 where their National Character set is UTF8.

Description

NIM005974 - SDE upgrade and service startup fail at checking existence of geometry_columns table.

Installing the Patch

ArcSDE 9.2 Service Pack 1 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 or ArcIMS 9.2 make sure you also see ESRI Products connecting to ArcSDE (Application and Direct Connect connections).
 

Server Install for UNIX

During installation, you can either save the original 9.2 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.

  1. Important Note: Before installing this patch, you must check your sde_setup.log file to make sure that the following error message is not present:

    ERROR in creating GEOMETRY_COLUMNS table.
    Error: -51
    [....] DBMS error code: 2264
    ORA-02264: name already used by an existing constraint
    If you see this error message in you sde_setup.log file, you must log in to Oracle as the sde admin user and run the following SQL statement:
    RENAME GEOMETRY_COLUMNS_30 to GEOMETRY_COLUMNS;
    Once you complete this step, you may proceed with the installing this patch.
  2. Download the appropriate tar file to a location other than $SDEHOME:

  3. 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.

  4. Extract the specified tar file by typing:

    % tar -xvf sde92-oraclepatch-<Database>-<Platform>.tar

  5. 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.

  6. 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

    • 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:

      % sdesetup -o upgrade -d <ORACLE9I|ORACLE10G> -u sde -p <SDE_Admin_password>

    • 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

How to identify which Patch is installed

  1. UNIX

    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 servicepacks have been installed. The PatchFinder utility searches for thefollowing 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

    Windows

    To check for the presence of a Patch, for each file examine the unique identification information provided (right click, properties, version tab, item name, QFE Version). With only a few exceptions, all files modified as part of a Patch distribution can be uniquely identified in this manner. The identification string for this Patch should read:

    • QFE-SDE-92-CQ00301549
