Additional installation instructions:
Note: There are no updates in this patch that require PoD to be redeployed. For Maritime Chart Service, if 10.8.1 Patch 7 has been deployed, only the MaritimeServer.soe will need to be redeployed.

Maritime Chart Service (MCS) updates:

Update Configuration Files
These steps are required if 10.8.1 Patch 7 has not been installed and deployed on your system. If it has, go to the Update MaritimeServer.soe steps below.

  1. Sign in 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. Backup the controlfiles folder by moving it. The location of the controlfiles can vary depending on your implementation. For example, <ArcGIS Server install>\arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice\controlfiles.
  5. Copy the new controlfiles folder from \MaritimeServer\Server<version>\maritimechartservice to the controlfiles folder of your implementation. For example, <ArcGIS Server install>\arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice.
    • Notes:
    • Consolidate modifications previously made to the backup control files with the new control files. See the list of new and modified configuration files below.
    • 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.
  6. Delete the .senc files. The .senc files will automatically be rebuilt when the Map Service is restarted as part of Update MaritimeServer.soe. The location of the .senc files can vary depending on your implementation. For example,<ArcGIS Server install>\arcgisserver\directories\maritimeserver\maritimechartservice\sencs.
  7. Repeat the above steps for each map service with the Maritime Chart Service capabilities enabled.


  1. Update MaritimeServer.soe
    If 10.8.1 Patch 7 or later has not been installed on your system, follow the Update Configuration Files steps above first.
    1. Login as a Server Manager by launching https://localhost:6443/arcgis/manager.
    2. Click Site.
    3. Click Extensions.
    4. Click Edit Extension under Action.
    5. Click Choose File and browse to the MaritimeService.soe file located in <ArcGIS Server Install>\MaritimeServer\Server\Bin.
    6. Click Save.
    7. Click Extension Information under Action. Verify that Description includes Update 2.
    8. Click Services and restart your Map Service(s).
