Date Published: 04-26-2006
This technical paper contains steps for installing and configuring ArcGIS Server on deployments of more than one machine. It is focused on deployments using the Windows operating system, although basic ArcGIS Server principles in this document may apply to other deployments.
ArcGIS Server has a scalable architecture that allows for deployment sizes ranging from one to many machines. A distributed installation of ArcGIS Server allows components of one ArcGIS Server system to reside on multiple machines in the same local network.
Configuring a distributed installation of ArcGIS Server requires you to perform a series of important administrative tasks in the correct order. The purpose of this technical paper is to help you through the process of a distributed installation.
