I am attempting up upgrade from ArcGIS Server 10.4.1 to Enterprise 10.5 and I receive the following error when going through manager:
Upgrade step 2 of 2 : Failed. Cannot start machine as it does not participate in an cluster.
As far as I am aware this server is not part of a cluster so not sure why that is causing failure. There is no way to login and change settings, or even see what is going on. The only options it gives me is to upgrade.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'd hate to have to uninstall and start all over.
Thanks in advance.
Using Windows File Explorer (on the machine ArcGIS Server is installed on), navigate to:
There should be the following items:
Are these items present?
Having same issues as the OP. Upgrading 10.4.1 to 10.5.1 and get to the cluster screen and then it updates for 30+ min and appears to crash out manager, sign back in and cluster not updated and have to start again.
Not even sure why cluster required as we only have one machine.
is present but C:\arcgisserver\config-store\clusters\default\arcgisserverhostname.dat does not exist and server manager page is stuck on Upgrade step 2 of 2 : Failed. Server machine 'serverhostname' is not registered with the Site.
I would also like to know if anyone has figured out the solution to this error? I got the same error message as the original post and I am upgrading from AGS 10.3.1 to 10.6. Not sure how to proceed past the error.
Are the following files present?
Thanks for the reply. I should have checked about those files you listed in the prior replies, but I didn't. I contacted Esri Support right away and got help.
They had me uninstall ArcGIS Server completely, then install 10.6 fresh. That worked fine, no surprise. They definitely felt that upgrading to 10.6 was hit or miss and highly recommended a fresh install of AGS 10.6 to avoid potential issues.
