How To: Update ArcIMS if the hostname has been changed

Summary

If the ArcIMS host name has been changed, ArcIMS also requires changes.

Procedure

As an alternative to Steps 1-4, ArcIMS Post Installation can be run again to update the Web Server Host name and the Application Server Host name.

  1. Update the Esrimap_prop located in the servlet engine directory; for example, in C:\Tomcat4112\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes. Change the property for the AppServerMachine to the new hostname.
  2. In a text editor, open the file monitor.properties, located in the directory <drive>:\Program Files\ArcGIS\ArcIMS\Server\Monitor. Change the property for the RegistryHost to the new hostname.
  3. In a text editor, open the file tasker.properties, located in the directory <drive>:\ProgramFiles\ArcGIS\ArcIMS\AppServer\Tasker. Change the property for the RegistryHost to the new hostname.
  4. In a text editor, open the file aimsdefaults.properties, located in C:\Documents and Settings\<username>.
    Replace all instances of the old host name with the new host name. Save and close the file.
  5. Verify in Administrator that the changes took effect. Click View > Site Properties. Ensure the new host name is reflected in the Site Properties or change them accordingly.
  6. For all Java Viewer websites, open the default.axl file and update the 'axl location' to point to the new host name.
  7. For all HTML Viewer websites, open the ArcIMSparam.js file and alter the variables 'imsURL' and 'imsOVURL' to point to the new host name.
