ArcGIS Server 10.9 PostgreSQL ST_Geometry Patch

Summary

This patch provides the correct ST_Geometry libraries to be able to configure an enterprise geodatabase with PostgreSQL running on Linux.

Description

Esri® announces the ArcGIS Server 10.9 PostgreSQL ST_Geometry Patch. If you are using ArcGIS Server 10.9 and you have PostgreSQL on Linux you will need this patch to correctly enable an enterprise geodatabase or the ST_Geometry spatial type. If you do not have this patch you will get the following error when setting up the geodatabase or spatial type with the libraries provided with ArcGIS Server 10.9: "You must copy the latest ST_GEOMETRY library to the PostgreSQL software location. Refer to the ArcGIS help topics for more details." It deals specifically with the issues listed below under Issues Addressed with this patch.


Important Note: There is an optional patch named ArcGIS Data Store 10.9 PostgreSQL ST_Geometry Patch which can be applied to the Data Store component of ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9. You will only need to apply the patch to one computer and software package. The ST_Geometry.SO file will then need to be moved from the Database Support folder to the PostgreSQL server on Linux.
