ArcCatalog 'Local' or 'Admin' connections to ArcGIS Server Java on Linux and Unix may fail and display a variety of errors.
ArcCatalog 'Local' and 'Admin' connections to ArcGIS Server Java on Unix and Linux utilize a Microsoft technology known as Distributed Component Object Model (DCOM) to communicate. This technology is non-native to Linux and Unix environments and thus does not benefit from Microsoft updates to the Windows OS. As a result, the divergence of development directions from the Linux and Unix DCOM implementation has resulted in a need for an alternative protocol (HTTP) and precludes further support of the Windows-to-Linux DCOM model.
Esri no longer supports Windows-based ArcCatalog 'Local' or 'Admin' connections to ArcGIS Server Java on Linux and Unix.
ArcCatalog 'Local' connections to ArcGIS Server should be replaced by 'Internet' connections from ArcCatalog. See the following ArcGIS Server Web Help article for more information: Making a user connection to ArcGIS Server in ArcCatalog.
ArcCatalog 'Admin' connections to ArcGIS Server Java should be replaced with the use of the ArcGIS Server Manager Web application interface. See the following ArcGIS Server Web Help article for more information: Logging in to Manager
