Frequently asked question

Can an ArcMap Image service be created on UNIX using an mxd that references UNIX aliases and environment variables?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


No. The ArcMap Server is unable to reference data whose path contains special characters such as spaces or '$'. ArcMap documents that are served using the ArcMap Server on Unix must employ absolute data paths and contain lower-case alpha-numeric characters.
