I am trying to register a local folder "D:\arcgisserver\GeoEvent\Output" with GeoEvent Processor and it fails with no message. After I click register it just goes back to the main Site tab in GeoEvent Processor. I was able to successfully Register ArcGis Server but no folders.
Have you tried registering any other system folder? The Introduction to GeoEvent Processor tutorial chose to use C:\arcgisserver as the base folder only because that is the default server directory used by ArcGIS for Server, and we discovered that permissions for the OS-level user responsible for running the ArcGIS for Server and GeoEvent Processor services needed to be added to 'My Documents' folder when attempting to register folders such as C:\Users\<user>\Documents\ArcGIS.
Try creating a folder C:\GeoEvent on the local HDD and registering that folder. The user you've logged-in as should be the owner of that folder. If the folder fails to register with GeoEvent Processor as a Data Store, try adding the OS-level user responsible for running the 'ArcGIS GeoEvent Processor for Server' service as a local user with 'Full Control' over the folder and any sub-folders.
Hi, I've just encountered this same issue. I've added a folder on C:\GeoEvent and given full control to that log-in user as well as the user running GEP but to no avail. It still doesn't register the folder and returns to the main site tab.
