We're looking to upgrade our ArcGIS Server to version 11.1. Our Maximo Spatial version is currently at 22.214.171.124.
IBM's Maximo Spatial docs don't list this combination as supported:
Maximo Spatial System Requirements
But is anyone out there already using ArcGIS Server 11.x successfully with Maximo Spatial? Specifically with Spatial v126.96.36.199?
We'd appreciate hearing whether it's working for you or if you came across any issues.
Thanks in advance,
I took a look at that doc you referenced in your post. What is limitation to trading up to MAS 8.6? I realize that is a loaded question. 8.6 is the only listed version that handles ESRI 11.0 and Maximo EAM 7.6.1.x is going end of life in a relatively short period of time. I am thinking it is likely you are going in that direction soon anyway, yes? If not (i.e. you have no plans to upgrade in the next 24 months) why not? Is a technically not supported combination worth the risk to your business? Or to phrase it differently is the risk less than the cost of the upgrade? I am curious as to your reasoning here.
Yes, we'll be moving towards MAS soon. But not before we will need to upgrade our ArcGIS. So I'm hoping someone out there already has experience with the combination of ArcGIS 11.x and Maximo Spatial 188.8.131.52 and can share their findings.
Good to hear that you have that in a roadmap. Too bad you will have the technical gap between versions. ugh.... you may want to open a ticket on this as well. Belt and suspenders right? 😜 Hopefully someone else will turn up in the forum and be able to say "Yes we have tried this and....". Good luck.
@Pedro Spadacini Wonder if you can speak to this for Ryan. It appears he will face a technical gap due to timing of ArcGIS upgrade and MAS upgrade. Can either ESRI or IBM help him surface this gap?
I talked with the Spatial Product Manager this morning for an update. We are currently testing with ArcGIS 11.1 for our MAS 8.11 release and plan to back port that support to Spatial 7.6.1 as well. You will likely see this certification with 7.6.1 in the October timeframe as MAS 8.11 is planned for September release.
That's good news! Thanks for the update, Lacey.
Great to see that Spatial 7.6.1 is going to receive support ArcGIS 11.1. We find ourselves in a very similar position to the Ryan; would you be able to provide any update as to when we might see the certification for 7.6.1?
I just checked in with the Product Manager. Support for ArcGIS 11.1 will be included with Maximo 184.108.40.206 and Spatial 7.6.1 with the iFix that is released end of this month, September. I'll check back in after the iFix is released and verify.
