ArcGIS Server 10.8.1 Utility Network Patch 2

Summary

This patch addresses several functional issues with the 10.8.1 utility network release.

Description

Introduction

January 20, 2021: Esri has released revised setups for this patch to address an issue for organizations using parcel fabrics. These revised setups will install over top of the original patch however the Patch Notification tool is not able to report that a new, revised version has been installed. If you use the Patch Notification utility, please first uninstall the original patch and then run the PatchNotification utility to install this new, revised patch.

Important Note: Esri has discovered an issue with ArcGIS Server 10.8.1 Utility Network Patch 2 and the patch is being temporarily pulled back until the problem can be resolved. The issue is isolated to users of the parcel fabric that have downloaded and installed this patch alongside another previously released patch that contained a number of fix for parcel fabrics. Customers that have already downloaded and installed this patch do not need to uninstall it unless parcel fabrics are used within their organization. A new version of this patch will be made available shortly at which time Esri recommends that all ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8.1 users install the new version of ArcGIS Server 10.8.1 Utility Network Patch 2, including those that have already downloaded and installed the previous version of the patch.
