1. SDE is being installed in service mode on a machine with windows 2008 x64 OS 2. Oracle RAC is installed on M3000 (SPARC) machines with Solaris OS 3. If DB is also on windows OS then its fine we can register "st_shapelib.dll" and "libst_raster_ora.dll" library files, but since it on Solaris so finding no way. Can any one guide me in this?
You'll need the solaris version of the libraries if your oracle install is on solaris. You should be able to just run the ArcSDE solaris install from the DVD and then copy those libraries to where ever you want to have them and then continue your setup. By the way if you are not planning to run sql that needs the extproc, then these libraries are not even needed.
I know this is an old thread, but I'm having a similar problem. We want to run the SDE service from a windows server and hook it up to an oracle instance running on a Linux distribution. My group does not have admin rights to the linux box running oracle to "temporarily" install ArcSDE just to grab these two files (libst_shapelib.so and libst_raster_ora.so). Are any ESRI people aware of a repository where I could grab these two files so I can continue with my install of SDE??
Contracts would have to do a DMCA takedown on any site that did share these files in violation of the license agreement.
You don't need admin rights to install ArcSDE -- any login with write privileges anywhere is enough. It's actually best to do a full install (without postinstall) on each node, so that applying service packs is as simple as possible, but Linux is the easiest Unix platform to locate (you don't even need to install it, just use the boot image with a thumb drive on any PC to extract the files).
Given that geodatabase installation must now occur from a Desktop or Server install, these files are now distributed as part of the Desktop and Server installations, in the DatabaseSupport folder, so there isn't any need to burden the Windows ArcSDE media with other architecures' DLLs.
