Error: Error found when administering MapService

Error Message

When trying to create an image map service from an AXL file that contains references to image layers, the following error occurs x number of times, where x = the number of instances associated with the ImageServer:

"Error found when administering MapService"


This error occurs when the system PATH environment variable exceeds 256 characters.

Solution or Workaround

Two possible work-arounds can be implemented for this error:

1. Install the Spatial Server component on a machine whose system PATH variable is shorter than 256 characters.

2. Remove paths from the existing PATH variable so that the resulting variable is less than 256 characters long.
