Last Published: April 25, 2020


When installing ArcGIS 10.1 (Final) for Server on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) version 5.6, the following warning is displayed:

"There is a known issue with ArcGIS Server 10.1 for Server PreRelease on RHEL 5.6. Please check Knowledge Base article 38967 for details."
