Note: There are no updates in this patch that require PoD to be redeployed. For Maritime Chart Service, if you already deployed 10.8.1 Patch 4, then this patch only updates the MaritimeServer.soe along with the crs.xml and S52DisplayProperties.xml.

Maritime Chart Service

  1. Login as a Server Manager by launching https://localhost:6443/arcgis/manager.
  2. Click Services.
  3. Stop the map service with Maritime Chart Service capabilities configured.
  4. Move the controlfiles folder from \arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice\controlfiles to a backup location.
  5. Copy the new controlfiles folder from \MaritimeServer\Server\maritimechartservice to \arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice.
  6. If modifications were made to the old control files, they will need to be made to the new control files. The backup control files can be used to consolidate modifications with the new control files. For example Coordinate systems and AutoCellUpdate settings.
  7. If the map service was configured to read S-63 encrypted datasets, copy the S-63 user-permit.txt file from the backup controlfiles folder to the new controlfiles folder.
  8. Delete the .senc files from \arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice\sencs. The .senc files must be rebuilt after upgrading. Deleting that will significantly increase creation performance.
  9. Repeat steps 1 through 8 for each map service with the Maritime Chart Service capabilities configured.
  10. Login as an administrator by launching https://localhost:6443/arcgis/admin.
  11. Click Uploads.

  24. Click the map service for which you want to enable the Maritime Chart Service.
  25. Click Capabilities.
  26. Verify that the datasetsDirectory, controlFilesDirectory, and workingDirectory properties point to the correct locations. For more information about these properties, see the 'Modifying Maritime Chart Service capabilities properties' section of Setting Maritime Chart Service properties.
  27. Click Save and Restart to make the Maritime Chart Service available.
  28. Confirm the Maritime Chart Service capabilities are working properly in the map service by verify that the .senc files in the sencs folder are current.
