Description

ESRI ® announces the ArcGIS Compress with Concurrent Editors patch. This patch fixes two issues associated with compressing a geodatabase while users are in the process of making versioned edits to data in the geodatabase. The specific issues addressed in this patch are listed in the next section. ESRI recommends you apply this patch if you compress your geodatabase while any users are concurrently performing edits.

Please see technical articles 36194 and 35287 for more detailed information.

Issues Fixed with this Patch

  • NIM007009 - Identify tool returns nothing against route events in SDO_GEOMETRY that are registered as versioned
  • NIM012273 - ST_Geometry: Query misses features with NULL geometries and returns wrong result set or fails with SE_ROW_NOEXIST (-22) if the first feature in result set contains a NULL geometry.
  • NIM041843 - Compressing a geodatabase while users are connected and editing can encounter the error "Target state not found in the STATES table (-172)". (Please see technical article 35287 for more details.)
  • NIM042238 - Executing a compress operation while sessions are connected and editing can result in data inconsistencies if the compress operation attempts to delete a state of the database with descendant states. (Please see technical article 36194 for more details.)
  • NIM042827 - ArcSDE for Oracle: Optimize delete statements used by trim and deleting states when removing rows from a versioned table's deletes table.
  • NIM043097 - Compressing a geodatabase can lead to blocking conditions in ArcGIS which impact editor user response time. Please see technical article 36371 for more details.)
  • NIM010273 - Spatial Type for Oracle: Unable to create spatial index on feature class in ST_GEOMETRY when using European locale that uses a comma as a decimal symbol and Oracle

 

Installing the 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 an administrator account.

REQUIRED INSTALLATION STEP: If you connect to ArcSDE 9.3 via an Application Server and Direct Connect connections using ArcGIS 9.3, ArcIMS 9.3, or 9.3 ArcInfo Workstation make sure you also see ESRI products connecting to ArcSDE (application server and direct connections).

Server installation for UNIX

  • UNIX/Linux Installation Notes:

    During installation, you can either save the original 9.3 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.

    At a minimum, you must install ArcSDE 9.3 Service Pack 1 before installing this patch. If you have already installed the ArcSDE 9.3 Service Pack 1 Memory Allocation Patch, you can install the ArcSDE 9.3 Compress with Concurrent Editors patch on top of that. However, it is not required to install the Memory Allocation Patch because the ArcSDE 9.3 Compress with Concurrent Editors patch includes those fixes as well.

  1. Download the appropriate tar file to a location other than $SDEHOME:
  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.

  3. Extract the specified tar file by typing:
    % tar -xvf sde93sp1-compresspatch-<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. (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:

    • ADMINISTER DATABASE TRIGGER
    • 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

  6. 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> –u <DB_Admin_User> –p <DB_Admin_password>

  7. (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:

    • ADMINISTER DATABASE TRIGGER
    • 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. Restart your service.

    % sdemon -o start

  9. (This step only applies to Oracle or PostgreSQL users who have the ArcSDE component and the DBMS installed on separate servers. All other users proceed to the next step.)

    For Oracle:

    If you have the ArcSDE component and Oracle installed on separate servers, there are three shared libraries used by EXTPROC that must be copied to the Oracle server. Check the list of files altered by this patch. If any of the following files are on this list, new versions of the file must be copied to the Oracle server. Be sure the files copied to the Oracle server are designed to run on the operating system of the Oracle server. See the ArcSDE for Oracle installation guide for instructions.

    If the file is not in the list, new versions of it do not need to be copied to the Oracle server.

    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_shapelib st_shapelib.dll (Windows), libst_shapelib.so (Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium), libst_shapelib.sl (HP-UX PA-RISC), libst_shapelib_64.so (IBM)
    Projection Engine pe.dll (Windows), libpe.so (Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium), libpe.sl (HP-UX PA-RISC), libpe_64.so (IBM)
    Geometry sg.dll (Windows), libsg.so (Solaris, Linux, and HP-UX Itanium), libsg.sl (HP-UX PA-RISC), libsg_64.so (IBM)

    For PostreSQL:

    If you have the ArcSDE component and PostgreSQL installed on separate servers, there are three libraries that must be copied to the PostgreSQL server. Check the list of files altered by this patch. If any of the following files are on this list, new versions of the file must be copied to the PostgreSQL server. Be sure the files copied to the PostgreSQL server are designed to run on the operating system of the PostgreSQL server. See the ArcSDE for PostgreSQL installation guide for instructions.

    If the file is not in the list, new versions of it do not need to be copied to the PostgreSQL server.

    Library Name OS-dependent file names
    st_geometry st_shapelib.dl (Windows), st_geometry.so (Linux)
    Projection Engine pe.dll (Windows), libpe.so (Linux)
    Geometry sg.dll (Windows), libsg.so (Linux)
  10. If you have ArcSDE installed on more than one server, perform steps 1 through 8 for each one.
    Note:If you have multiple geodatabases on the same server, you only have to install the patch once on the server, but you must perform steps 5 through 8 to upgrade each of the geodatabases and restart their corresponding services if services exist.
