Attempts to access and view the ArcGIS GIS Server site via the REST endpoint through a localhost connection returns the error message:
This error may be due to an issue during the installation process that corrupts the installation of ArcGIS GIS Server. The error may also occur if the core programs required to run the server itself have erroneous processes that are not starting, preventing the REST endpoint from accessing the server.
In the event there are multiple servers on multiple machines, to identify which is the problematic server, stop each server one at a time while checking the ArcGIS for Server site to see if the site is operating normally.
Once the problematic server is identified, remove the server from the site, and perform a fresh reinstallation of ArcGIS for Server on the affected machine.
Note: If there are multiple servers on multiple machines, stop the other services using the Windows services.msc command; Windows Start > Run > type services.msc.
