Problem: AIX operating system users only: ArcIMS 9.1 Spatial server processes do not start after installing ArcSDE 9.1 General Update Patch 3 client libraries
NOTE: This article is applicable only for ArcIMS 9.1 installed on AIX operating system.
ArcIMS 9.1 Spatial server processes do not start after installing ArcSDE 9.1 General Update Patch 3 client libraries. The patch is intended for all ESRI Products connecting to ArcSDE (Application and Direct Connect connections).
The libsg91.a and libsde91.a libraries placed by ArcSDE 9.1 General Update Patch 3 are static. ArcIMS requires these libraries to be dynamic.

For further information on the slibclean and genkld commands please refer to the AIX system administrator documentation.
- Backup the libsde91.a and libsg91.a libraries:
mv libsde91.a libsde91.a.gup3
mv libsg91.a libsg91.a.gup3
- Copy libsde91.so and libsg91.so and create the dynamic version of libsg91.a and libsde91.a:
cp libsg91.so libsg91.a
cp libsde91.so libsde91.a
- Start ArcIMS:
