Problem: ArcSDE 8.2 release of sdeimport running on TRU64 O/S cannot import multi-volume export files
The ArcSDE 8.2 release of sdeimport installed on the TRU64 operating system will not correctly import a multi-volume export file. Not all records are imported.
Using the sdeexport command, a multi-volume export file is created whenever the export file reaches volume size threshold specified by the -X option. If the -X option is not specified a single volume export file is created.
This is an internal software defect for the ArcSDE 8.2 release of the sdeimport command running on the Tru64 operating system.
Solution or Workaround
Do not attempt to import multi-volume export files at ArcSDE 8.2 with sdeimport running on the TRU64 operating system.
Instead, upgrade to ArcSDE 8.3. The ArcSDE 8.3 release of the sdeimport command running on the TRU64 operating system will correctly import multi-volume export files.
