My organization has multiple Tb of stereo imagery we use to collect shoreline features and perform volumetric calculations on coal fields, limestone quarries and shale quarries. Currently, we are having to use 1Tb external hard drives to connect to each editors machine in order for them to access the stereo pairs. I have recently implemented an ArcGIS server and Image server architecture on our network that we use to share project status web apps with our clients, USGS quad and DOQQ services for our internal staff and we serve large amounts of ortho imagery on the fly taken directly from the aircraft sensor. My question is, how do you, or can you serve out stereo imagery in ArcGIS server? Is it defined in the wizard? Does it have to do with the Mosaicing process. I have researched everywhere but cannot find anything on serving stereo imagery via image server, please help. Regards, Andrew Widener TMSI email@example.com

I have ArcGIS server version 9.3.1 sp1 and Image Server 9.3.1 sp1 installed on a Server 2008 platform. It is a single platform install. No other machine in our network is a SOC or a service provider. It is a 64 bit system with all the imagery residing on a 5Tb SAN attached to the server. When I try to publish a simple image service, I get this old friendly message: Service was published but cannot be started due to: Server object instance creation failed on all SOC machines. Server Object instance creation failed on machine <machine name>. I have permissions to the directories on the SAN set so the SOC can read and the output directories as well. This has to be a configuration issue within image server, or something to do with the SAN. I was able to register Image Server with AGS server though. So at least I have that much. Has anyone experienced anything like this? One more thing, the service editor is my machine, it is the only component of the system on a seperate machine.
