Review and follow steps 1 and 2 from the ArcIMS Installation Guide on the DVD. These two steps ensure that the system meets the minimum requirements and assist in planning the ArcIMS site configuration. To open the ArcIMS Installation Guide, launch the DVD menu and click 'ArcIMS Installation Guide'.
Previous versions of ArcIMS must be uninstalled before proceeding. The setup program for ArcIMS on Windows prompts for the removal of previously installed versions.
If ArcIMS components were distributed among several computers, it is recommended to first remove the components on each computer before continuing by going to Add/Remove Programs and selecting Remove for ArcIMS.
If ArcGIS Server is already installed and running on the same machine where ArcIMS will be installed, then IIS is being run in 32-bit mode. Please follow steps for 32-bit installation.
Click here to access the Apache Tomcat 6.0.13 Download site.
Click on apache-tomcat-6.0.13.exe to download the file. Save it on the local machine.
Navigate to the folder where the file was downloaded and double-click apache-tomcat-6.0.13.exe.
Click Next to continue.
Read the License Agreement and click 'I Agree'.
At the Choose Components dialog box, change the type to 'Full' install. Alternatively, add at least the features Service and Examples to the selection. Click Next.
Select the preferred installation location; for example, the default C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0 or C:\Tomcat6.0.
Use the default settings in the Configuration dialog box. Create a new password for the Tomcat Administrator. Click Next.
The path of the JVM installed on the machine should be the location of the Java Standard Development Kit; for example, C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_13. Browse to this path if it is not set automatically and click OK.
If a path to an older SDK version is listed, cancel the Tomcat installation. Make sure that a Java SDK is installed and the environment variables JAVA_HOME and PATH do not include any old entries regarding the Java Runtime Environment or are pointing to the J2SDK location correctly.
Click Install to continue. Click Finish.
Setup of Environment Variables:
Right-click on My Computer and click Properties. Click the Advanced tab. Click on the Environment Variables button.
Under System Variables, click New. When prompted for Variable Name, type JAVA_HOME (case sensitive). For the Variable value, type the path where Java 2 SDK is installed; for example, C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_13. Click OK.
In the System variables list, scroll to the 'Path' variable, select it, and click Edit. In the Variable Value text box, append the following to the end of the text, including the semi-colon to separate from previous entries: ;%JAVA_HOME%\bin.
Verify that old references to JAVA_HOME in the path variable have been removed; for example, \jdk1.3.1 or similar.
Click OK twice to close the Properties window. For additional resources on installing Tomcat, click here.
It is recommended that you backup your operating system and files, including the registry, before proceeding. The instructions below include making changes to essential parts of your operating system. 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.
The registry file Win_IMS93_IIS_Tomcat60.reg is configured for Tomcat 6.0.13 installation at the location C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0. If Tomcat was installed to C:\Program Files (x86)\... or a custom location, open the file in Notepad, and make the appropriate changes to reflect the installation location.
If ArcGIS Server is installed on the same machine as ArcIMS, then IIS is being run in 32-bit mode. In this case, it is necessary to adjust the second line in the registry file to read:
A page that says 'Hello World' displays if the test is successful.
If this test fails, check the URL carefully for case or spelling issues. Retrace the installation steps. The URL may work if 'http://:8080/...' is specified. This only indicates that the Tomcat Web server is working on port 8080; the required redirect to IIS is failing.
Return to the IIS Management Console > Default Web Site > Properties. Check the ISAPI Filters tab. Verify that there is a green, upward arrow next to the Jakarta filter.
This only applies to IIS 6; IIS 7 does not have a way to check if the ISAPI filter is working.
If there is not a green arrow next to the Jakarta filter, stop and re-start the IIS Admin Service, including the WWW Publishing Service, from the Services panel. If that does not work, open a browser, and type 'http://localhost' to re-initialize IIS. If the Jakarta filter still fails, do not proceed further. Go back and verify the settings created in the previous steps.
Return to the IIS Management Console > Default Web Site > Jakarta. Verify that the Jakarta virtual directory is pointing to the correct location on the hard drive, the location of the isapi_redirect.dll.
Install ArcIMS from the installation CD. Refer to the ArcIMS Installation Guide (install.htm), step 3a.
To configure ArcIMS and run the ArcIMS Post Installation, see the ArcIMS Installation Guide, step 3b.
There are several options to authorize ArcIMS for use. See the Installation Guide, step 3b for more information. The following steps are for one common option:
Open a Web browser and go to http://service.esri.com.
Click Product Registration and select the corresponding ArcIMS version to register the software.
Enter the information requested and type the registration code in the field provided; for example, ECP123456789. The registration code is sent in an e-mail.
If a registration code for this product has not been received, contact Customer Service or an International Distributor.
After completing the online form, an e-mail is sent with an authorization file attached; for example, 123456789.ecp. Save the file in a directory on the ArcIMS machine.
Launch the ArcIMS Post Installation and select the Typical option.
Select the third option, 'I have received an authorization file...' and click Next.
Browse to the file received in step D and click Next to authorize ArcIMS for use.
Click Finish to exit the Software Authorization Wizard and continue with the ArcIMS Post Installation.
At the Web Server-Servlet Engine Configuration dialog box, select 'IIS with Tomcat 5.5.x/6.0.x'. Click Next.
Browse to the Tomcat installation directory; for example, C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0. Click Next. Click OK at the pop-up warning.
