Edit Configuration Store

Description

This operation updates the configuration store. Typically, this operation is used to change the location of the store.

When ArcGIS Server is installed, the default configuration store uses local paths. As the site grows (more server machines are added), the location of the store must be updated to use a shared file system path. On the other hand, if you know at the onset that your site will have two or more server machines, you can start from a shared path while creating a site and skip this step altogether.

Caution:

This operation is a time-consuming operation and causes all server machines to be restarted.
