How to change data paths for ArcMap Server on UNIX

Published: May 20, 2004


In ArcIMS 9.0, ArcMap Server is available on Solaris for serving ArcMap documents (mxd and pmf). If a map document contains local data (non-ArcSDE) referenced using Windows paths to data on Unix, the path names must be modified to Unix paths.


This document illustrates the steps involved in updating these Windows paths to Unix paths. The update is done using ArcCatalog. This download also includes two map documents – sample.mxd and sample.pmf – and associated data for testing.
