Ideally, ArcGIS enterprise systems should standardize on a single ArcGIS software version between clients and servers throughout the organization. However, upgrading such systems can result in an environment where ArcGIS clients are of a different software version than the multi-user geodatabase. This paper discusses the issues that can result from such a configuration, specifically with the following configurations.
- ArcGIS 8.3 geodatabase with ArcGIS 8.3 and 9 clients
- ArcGIS 9 geodatabase with ArcGIS 9 and 9.1 clients
