Upgrade a geodatabase

When a hotfix or patch for ArcGIS has been applied, it may also be necessary to upgrade your geodatabase depending on the nature of fixes included. See the Upgrade the Geodatabase section on the Geodatabase management page for your individual DBMS platform for more information. Executing the steps below will not cause any harm if your geodatabase is already at the required level, so the recommended approach is to follow the steps as outlined. If your database is already at the required level, you will get a message indicating so.

Upgrading from ArcGIS Server requires the use of Python. If you are working with ArcGIS Server on Windows or Linux, you can access the appropriate Python 3 environment by using the python.exe which is included with the framework/runtime components of ArcGIS Server. Additionally, on Windows a script batch file is available to launch the Python 3 environment.

To perform the upgrade, create a script using this example Python syntax, and name the script

import arcpy
arcpy.UpgradeGDB_management(Connection_File_Name_full_path, "PREREQUISITE_CHECK", "UPGRADE")


On Windows, run the upgrade script explicitly using the Python 3 environment. If ArcGIS Server is installed to the default location, the script can be executed with either of the following commands:

"C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Server\framework\runtime\ArcGIS\bin\Python\scripts\propy.bat" C:\temp\


"C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Server\framework\runtime\ArcGIS\bin\Python\envs\arcgispro-py3\python.exe" C:\temp\


On Linux, launch the Python 3 environment using the following commands:

source /<arcgis_server_installation_directory>/arcgis/server/framework/etc/arcenv

And then execute the upgrade script with the following command:

wine "Z:\<arcgis_server_installation_directory>\arcgis\server\framework\runtime\ArcGIS\bin\Python\envs\arcgispro-py3\python.exe" <path_To>\

Uninstalling this patch on Windows

To uninstall this patch on Windows, open the Windows Control Panel and navigate to installed programs. Make sure that "View installed updates" (upper left side of the Programs and Features dialog) is active. Select the patch name from the programs list and click Uninstall to remove the patch.

Uninstalling this patch on Linux

To remove this patch, navigate to the <Product Installation Directory>/.Setup/qfe directory and run the following script as the ArcGIS Install owner:


The script allows you to uninstall previously installed patches or hot fixes. Use the -s status flag to get the list of installed patches or hot fixes ordered by date. Use the -q flag to remove patches or hot fixes in reverse chronological order by date they were installed. Type removepatch -h for usage help.

Restart your ArcGIS services.

How to identify which ArcGIS products are installed

To determine which ArcGIS products are installed, choose the appropriate version of the PatchFinder utility for your environment and run it from your local machine. PatchFinder will list all products, hot fixes, and patches installed on your local machine.
