The ArcGIS Data Store 10.9.1, 11.0, and 11.1 graph stores are created in single-instance mode and only support a single machine. Upgrading the graph store to ArcGIS Enterprise 11.2 and later does not change the deployment mode to allow for more than one machine.
The underlying technology used for the graph store does not support changing deployment modes.
backupdatastore <backup file name> --store graph –location <location options>
See the ArcGIS Data Store utility reference page for syntax.
Note: You must create a backup after upgrading; you cannot use a backup file of an older ArcGIS Data Store version to restore the graph store.
unregisterdatastore --stores graph
restoredatastore –store graph –target <backup file name> --source-loc <parent directory location of backup file> --data-dir <Data Store content directory on new machine>
--server-url <hosting server URL> --server-admin <username of ArcGIS Server administrator of the hosting server> --server-password <password of ArcGIS Server administrator of the hosting server>
See the ArcGIS Data Store utility reference page for an explanation of each operation.
This creates a graph store, which is deployed in primary-standby mode by default.
