I asked a question before, but was probably not specific enough, so didn't get the information I required. My fault completely.
I am creating a new sde instance on a server. This needs to be pointed at an existing Oracle 11g database, that has a pre exisiting SDE schema and data in it.
Now all the installs I have seen, have created all of the system tables, but this one doesn't need to, as they are there. Also, which is more alarming, is that I cannot perform an upgrade, as it hasn't been installed before.
Not too sure how to take it from here. I don't normally work with SDE, buit have thoroughly researched the issue. Has anyone seen this issue, or have advice as regards the issue?
Thanks in advance.
EDIT This is my plan of action.
- Dump file of Oracle non spatial data
- Install SDE
- Create new Schema
- export SDE data from old DB (sdeexport)
- import SDE data from sdeexport file
We'll see how that fares, but it appears the only way to me.
