I am trying to install ArcGIS server 10.3 on a Windows 2016 server.   The server configuration utility would not run after the installation.

Esri has only certified Windows 2016 for ArcGIS versions 10.4.1 and 10.5/10.5.1.

Randall,

Correct me if I am wrong. I think Esri certified the compatibility of ArcGIS Server with Windows Server 2016 from ver. 10.5.x.

Certification for Windows Server 2016 for ArcGIS 10.4.1 is new - the certification was only finalized and announced by Product Management last week. We're working to update the doc.

Thank you for the update. I know people who have installed ArcGIS Server 10.3 in Windows Server 2016 successfully (I didn't try it myself though).

Hi Jayanta Poddar, Thanks for the reply.  I am stuck at step 9.  "After completing authorization, ArcGIS Server Manager should already be open. You can now log in to Manager and create a new site. For more information, see Creating a new site."    The server Manager is not open.   I am not able to bring that up.  I installed most of the components.  I am trying to install .net 3.5 yet.  I will try that now and see what happens.

When you complete the software authorization, open a browser and navigate to https://localhost:6443/arcgis/manager.

Are you prompted to build your site? If not, do you get a message of some sort in the response?

Randall Williams Employee, I think there is something else wrong here.  I don't see arcgis application added to IIS.  My c:\arcgisserver folder has one empty subfolder 'directories'.

I think  c:\arcgisserver folder will get populated once the site is created. Can you open ArcGIS Server Manager manually by opening any of these URL on a web browser

http://localhost:6080/arcgis/manager

or

https://localhost:6443/arcgis/manager

or by navigating to Windows (Start Menu) > All Programs > ArcGIS > .... ArcGIS Server Manager (Manager)

Once you have successfully opened the Server Manager page, you should get the option of creating a new site.

OK, let's take a step back here.

Starting at 10.1, ArcGIS Server is a Java application that has web server components.

It does not install to IIS, so you wouldn't see an ArcGIS Application there in IIS quite yet.

There *is* a Web Adaptor component that can install to either IIS or to a J2EE server (sounds like you'll be using IIS).

When you install the web adaptor, you'll see that application installed into IIS.

Background: The web adaptor essentially acts as a proxy from your web server front end to the GIS Server back end - essentially, it proxies requests into https://yourwebserver.com:443 to the GIS Server at https://yourGISServer.com:6443 (or from https://yourwebserver.com to http://yourGISServer.com:6080)....

At this point, it's expected to not see an application for ArcGIS in IIS. Instead, you're running the GIS Server on HTTP ports - outside of IIS - , which is expected.

Please copy and paste the following into a browser running locally on the machine that the GIS Server was installed on:

http://localhost:6080/arcgis/manager

By default, assuming everything installed correctly (which we're not sure about yet), you should see a page that asks you to create a new ArcGIS Server site.
