When adding an ArcMap Service, ArcIMS returns this message:“Error when trying to administer Service.”
The following may cause ArcIMS to return this message:
1. The monitor is not running when you try to add an ArcMap Service.
2. The License Server is unavailable.
ArcMap Server requires a license. In this case, ArcIMS uses the same FlexLM License Manager used by ArcGIS products. For information on the license go to <ArcIMS CD>\Documentation\LicenseManagerGuide.htm .
