After upgrading to ArcGIS GIS Server 10.5, joining additional machines to an ArcGIS Server site (single or multi-node) using a network path for the configuration store fails with the following error:
Error: Unable to access directory path '/relational-datastore-types' on the shared config-store.
This issue occurs in the following cases:
This issue does not occur in the following cases:
The host ArcGIS Server site is upgraded to ArcGIS 10.5 from an earlier version. ArcGIS Server searches for a path to the /relational-datastore-types folder, which is unintentionally added to the configuration store path in ArcGIS Server 10.5. This folder is not in the configuration store root path for newer versions.
Note: This issue does not occur when upgrading from an earlier version to ArcGIS Server 10.5.1 or newer.
Note: It is recommended to delete the relational-datastore-types folder before upgrading to ArcGIS Server 10.5.1 or later from ArcGIS for Server 10.5 to ensure there is no extra folder left in ArcGIS 10.5.1 or later releases.
