Iam trying to Create a Geodatabase in Oracle 11g DB using "Enable Enterprise Geodatabase" tool in ArcCatalog.

1.Created sde user and table space ,also granted necessary previleges to sde user in Oracle 11g DB.

2.Also copied to $ORACLE_HOME/lib directory in my Oracle 11g server.

3.Modified Tnsnames.oar and Listener.ora for extproc and restarted server.

4.Created library in oracle db using below command :


After performing above steps when I try to use "Enable Enterprise Geodatabase" log file says :

[12/11/2013 8:14:42 PM] Validated authorization file.
[12/11/2013 8:14:44 PM] User has required privileges for geodatabase setup.

sde_setup.log says:

Can some one let us know what we are missing here?

Hi Dharmender,

Is your oracle instance 32-bit by chance? It sounds like the database you are trying to use is not supported.

Hi Fojo,

I just verified that our oracle 11g db is 32 bit machine.
So,is this not supported?

Effrctive ArcGIS 10.1, ArcSDE server capabilities are only supported on 64-bit architecture.
Clients can be 32-bit, but all server installations must be 64-bit.

32-bit Oracle is not supported for SDE.ST_GEOMETRY.
