Instructions provided describe how to build Geocoding Indices with IndexBuilder using the command line option.
This can also be done in ArcIMS Author when selecting the geocoding style.
When data is changed or ArcIMS is upgraded it may be necessary to rebuild the Geocoding Indices.
ArcIMS uses an executable called 'IndexBuilder' to build the geocoding indices. It takes in two arguments, 'AXL file' and the 'layer ID' to build the indices. The output is two files with extensions .gci and .xrf.
"C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\ArcIMS\IndexBuilder\aimsindxb.exe" "C:\ArcIMS\AXL\geocode.axl" 2
<SDEWORKSPACE name="sde_ws-0" server="test" instance="port:5151" database="sde" user="sde"
encrypted="true" password="KMQZGB" geoindexdir="C:\temp\" />
<SHAPEWORKSPACE name="shp_ws-0" directory="C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\ArcIMS\Samples\TutorialData" />
It is important to note that these index files should be available to the Spatial Server for the map service to return geocoding results correctly.
