Register Machine

  • URL:http://server:port/arcgis/admin/machines/register(POST only)
  • Required Capability:Administrator
  • Version Introduced:10.1

Description

For a server machine to participate in a site, it needs to be registered with the site. The server machine must have ArcGIS Server software installed and authorized.

Registering machines this way is a "pull" approach to growing the site and is a convenient way when a large number of machines need to be added to a site. In contrast, a server machine can choose to join a site.

Note:

If you are adding more than one machine to your site, then your server directories and configuration store must be directories on a shared file system.

If your site has registered Relational Data Store Types and more machines are added, you must completely restart ArcGIS Server on each newly registered machine. To do this, you need to restart the Windows Service or use the stopserver/startserver scripts on Linux.
