Hi, friends,

I am joining my new ArcGIS Server 10.1 machine to an existing site. And I got errors at the last step of joining (see the attached image. I deleted some sensitive information for security purpose).

(1) The exiting site and the new Arc Server machine are in the same version 10.1 (patch 1).
(2) Both of them are installed/configured as a domain user: domainname\arcgis.
(3) The folder of arcgisserver is shared by using UNC path as \\machinename\arcgisserver. Since the domain user of arcgis is the owner of the folder of arcgisserver, I can't set the read/write permission separatorly (see the screenshot below).

(4) Since the new server is installed/configured by using the same domain user, arcgis, the shared arcgisserver folder should be readable/writeable to the new server. Am I right? Additionally, I can't set the read/write permission separatorly (see the screenshot above).
(5) Operation system for both servers: Windows Server 2008 R2.
(6) I could join the same same to the existing site successfully. The problem happens after I patched both machines.

That's all I can think of now. If you need additional information for detailed diagnose, let me know.

Thanks,

Mike
