How To: Use the AddInstance utility to create a new instance of ArcGIS Server Manager
Instructions provided describe how to create and configure a new instance of ArcGIS Server Manager using the AddInstance utility. The AddInstance utility is included with the ArcGIS Server product in <ArcGIS Install>\DotNet.
Warning: The following instructions involve modifying a registry value. It is recommended that you backup your operating system and files, including the registry, before proceeding. Consult with a qualified computer systems professional, if necessary. ESRI cannot guarantee results from incorrect modifications while following these instructions. Therefore, use caution and proceed at your own risk.
- IIS stores the physical location of the default IIS Web site in the following registry key:
The default value is usually c:\Inetpub\wwwroot. Before starting the ArcGIS Server installation, change this registry key value to the root folder for the Web site on which an ArcGIS Server Manager instance is being created.
- Start the AddInstance utility (<ArcGIS Install>\DotNet\AddInstance.exe) and enter the instance name, name of the server object manager (SOM) machine, and an identity that can connect to the SOM. Click the Add button. The utility takes a moment to complete the task. When finished, the ArcGIS instance folders and virtual directories are created.
- In IIS Manager, verify that the Keyhole Markup Language (KML), Manager, Services and Web Map Service (WMS) directories contained within the new instance are configured as applications.
- In IIS Manager, under the ArcGIS instance folder, open the Manager directory.
- Select Properties.
- Under Application Settings, click the Create button.
- Confirm that Execute Permissions are set to Scripts Only.
- Click Apply and OK.
- In IIS Manager, verify that the .AGSX and .* extension mappings have been added to the Services folder or virtual directory.
