FAQ: Can ArcGIS for Server be upgraded without upgrading the Geoportal extension if the extension is customized or installed on a separate server?

Question

Can ArcGIS for Server be upgraded without upgrading the Geoportal extension if the extension is customized or installed on a separate server?

Answer

Yes. This is because there is no direct relationship between ArcGIS for Server and the Geoportal extension. To upgrade ArcGIS for Server without upgrading the Geoportal extension, users must edit the main geoportal configuration file, gpt.xml, and have the Geoportal services point to the following URL, server.arcgis.online.com.
