The ArcGIS Server configuration, including any created Server Objects, disappears when the ArcGIS Server Object Manager service gets restarted from the Services control panel.
The ArcGIS Server log file may contain a warning message similar to the following:
<Msg time="2005-06-29T17:11:41" level="Warning" code="1012"
target="Server" thread="3864">Server.cfg failed to load.Parser Error</Msg>
This problem occurs when ArcGIS Server is unable to parse the server and server object configuration files located in the ArcGIS Server installation directory \cfg folder.
ArcGIS Server uses the Microsoft XML Parser 4, MSXML4.dll, to parse the configuration files. This problem will occur if a different version of MSXML is registered or the MSXML4.dll is not registered correctly.
Register the system file msxml4.dll.
