Mapguide 6.5 Server – Missing the Autodesk Spatial Data Provider for Oracle Spatial

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — Darrin Maidlow @ 7:41 am

Over the years, this problem has sporadically appeared (probably once or twice a year).  In the Mapguide 6.5 server admin when creating a new data source the Autodesk Spatial Data Provider for Oracle Spatial doesn’t appear as an option.  Every time this comes up I end up wracking my brain to remember what the solution is.  I know I’ve dealt with this many times – but I cannot remember the details.  Usually it’s occurring on a customer’s production server which is not a place I like to mess around.  This time, it was my development server – let the messing around begin!

In a nutshell this is a result of installing Mapguide server before the Oracle client is installed on the server.  The solution is to do a repair install of Mapguide Server (or a re-install if you prefer) once the Oracle client is installed.  Hopefully next year when this comes up again – writing this down will help me remember.  Worst case Google might pick this up and I’ll find my own post when I search for it…
