  2. Stop your current ArcSDE service, if one is running.

% 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.

  1. Extract the specified tar file by typing:

    % tar -xvf sde931-sp1-<Database>-<Platform>.tar

  2. Start the installation by typing:

    % ./applypatch

  3. 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.

  4. (This step is for Oracle only, all other DBMS skip to the next step)
    Before running "sdesetup -o upgrade", 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

  5. To upgrade, run sdesetup. Failure to do so may cause problems in starting the service or with connecting to the geodatabase. 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|ORACLE11G|SQLSERVER|DB2|INFORMIX|POSTGRESQL> -D <database_name> -s <datasource> –u <DB_Admin_User> –p <DB_Admin_password>

  6. (This step is for Oracle only, all other DBMS skip to the next step)
    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
