The Upgrade Production Database geoprocessing tool and the command in the Product Library window update all the components necessary for your geodatabase to perform as a production database. This is necessary if there was an upgrade on the schema and your database is missing tables. The current production database will show an Out of date message.
If you use versioning and need to upgrade the production database, you will need to upgrade the DEFAULT version first then reconcile the child versions.
Upgrading the production database
You can only perform the upgrade if you connect as the schema owner for the workspace.
The steps in this topic use the Upgrade Production Database geoprocessing tool, but the upgrade can also be performed with the Upgrade Production Database command in the Product Library window.
- Start ArcMap.
- Connect as the schema owner to the DEFAULT version.
- Click the ArcToolbox button on the Standard toolbar.
The ArcToolbox window appears.
- Expand Production Mapping Tools > Product Library.
- Double-click Upgrade Production Database.
The Upgrade Production Database dialog box appears.
- Click the Workspace for Production Database browse button and browse to the workspace you want to upgrade.
- Click the Configuration Keyword (optional) drop-down arrow and choose an option.
For an enterprise geodatabase, you can choose DEFAULTS unless you have configured a different geodatabase configuration keyword.
- DEFAULTS—Stores data up to 1 TB in size; text is stored in UTF8 format.
- TEXT_UTF16—Stores data up to 1 TB in size; text is stored in UTF16 format.
- MAX_FILE_SIZE_4GB—Limits data size to 4 GB; text is stored in UTF8 format.
- MAX_FILE_SIZE_256TB—Stores data up to 256 TB in size; text is stored in UTF8 format.
- Click OK.
The Upgrading Production Database Workspace dialog box appears with the progress.
- Click OK when the process completes.
If the production database supports ArcGIS Defense Mapping, ArcGIS Production Mapping, ArcGIS Maritime, ArcGIS Bathymetry, or ArcGIS Aviation, it upgrades the tables that are part of the extension listed in the ToolTip. The production database also displays (Missing Extensions) next to Production Data if the production database supports a solution that is not installed.
Reconciling the child versions
You can now reconcile the child versions in batch through the Catalog window. This workflow will reconcile all changes from the parent to child versions, including all data edits. You can alternatively reconcile manually and per child version using the Versioning toolbar.
- In the Catalog window, right-click on the geodatabase and click Administration > Administer Geodatabase.
The Geodatabase Administration dialog box appears.
- Select all child versions, right-click the selection, then click Reconcile Version.
The Reconcile Versions dialog box appears.
- Click OK to accept all the defaults.
- Close the Reconcile Versions Results dialog box when the process completes.
If needed, you can post the changes from the child versions to the DEFAULT version.
