Review and follow Steps 1 and 2 from the ArcIMS Installation Guide. These two steps ensure that the system meets the minimum requirements and assist in planning the ArcIMS site configuration.
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 are distributed among several computers, before continuing with the installation, remove the components on each computer by going to Add/Remove Programs and selecting Remove for ArcIMS.
If ArcGIS Server is already installed and running on the same Web site where ArcIMS is to be installed, then IIS is being run in 32-bit mode. Follow the steps for 32-bit installation.
B. Click apache-tomcat-6.0.18.exe to download the file. Save it on the local machine.
C. Navigate to the download folder, and double-click apache-tomcat-6.0.18.exe.
D. Click Next.
E. Read the License Agreement, and click I Agree.
F. In the Choose Components dialog box, change the type to Full install, or alternatively, only select the Service and Examples features.
G. Click Next.
H. Select the preferred installation location; for example, the default C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0 or C:\Tomcat6.0.
I. Select the default settings in the Configuration dialog box. Create a new password for the Tomcat Administrator. Click Next.
J. If the path is not set automatically, map the path of the installed JVM to the location of the Java Standard Development Kit; for example, C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16. 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 make sure that the environment variables, JAVA_HOME and PATH, do not include any old entries regarding the Java Runtime Environment and that they are pointing to the J2SDK location correctly.
K. Click Install to continue. Click Finish.
SETUP OF ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
L. Right-click My Computer, and click Properties > Advanced tab > Environment Variables button.
M. Under System Variables, click New. When prompted for Variable Name, type JAVA_HOME, this is case sensitive. For the Variable value, type the path where Java 2 SDK is installed; for example, C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16. Click OK.
N. In the System variables list, scroll to the Path variable, select it, and click Edit. In the Variable Value text box, add the following to the end of the text, including the semicolon to separate it from previous entries:
O. Verify that old references to JAVA_HOME in the path variable have been removed; for example, <drive:>\jdk1.3.1.
Find the file 'context.xml' in <Tomcat installation directory>\conf, and open it in a text editor.
Add the parameter privileged="true" into the <Context> tag at the beginning of the file. The first two lines of the file should look like this:
<!-- The contents of this file will be loaded for each web application -->
Save and close the file.
CONFIGURE THE REGISTRY
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://<hostname>:8080/...' is specified. This only indicates that the Tomcat Web server is working on port 8080; the required redirect to IIS is failing.
C. 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.
D. 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.
To configure ArcIMS and run the ArcIMS Post Installation, see 'Step 3b: ArcIMS post installation setup' in the ArcIMS Installation Guide.
Verify that the ArcIMS installation was successful.
A. Navigate to Start > Programs > ArcGIS > ArcIMS > ArcIMS Diagnostics.
B. Verify that the Web server protocol and the Web server name are correct, including the domain and port number. The default is port 80.
On Windows XP/2003 machines, Internet Explorer sometimes does not show the host name and port number. If this is the case, right-click near the top of the window, and select Allow Blocked Content.
C. Test both components.
The results for Test 1 should be: IMS v10.0.0 Build_Number=183.1916 Version=10.0.0 Test successful
The results for Test 2 should be:
Version=10.0.0 Build_Number=183.2159 Test successful
If these tests are successful, the ArcIMS Application Server and ArcIMS Servlet Connector are configured correctly. If an error message is received, select the error number from the drop-down list, and click View. The error number and a description appear. Follow the instructions in the description to fix the problem, and run the Diagnostics tool again.
