I have just started learning about ArcGIS Server and plan on getting some training, but in the meantime, I have some questions. We currently use Milsoft's WindMil Map, WindMil and DisSPatch software. WindMil Map is an extension of ArcMap. We are adding Mobile Workforce Management from Clevest, and need to be able to access our model through ArcServer. I have installed ArcGIS Server and want to export from WindMil Map to server, but Milsoft Support tells me this:
"In order to view your circuit model in ArcServer you will have to export it to a separate file geodatabase and set up a new mxd that is referencing this separate file geodatabase for publishing. If you try to use Milsoft's file geodatabase and an mxd that is referencing a circuit model, some unfavorable behavior can occur in ArcServer since we have code tied to the data.
Usually, the ESRI tools 'Feature Class to Geodatabase (multiple)' or 'Feature Class to Feature Class' are used to export the circuit model data into a new file geodatabase.
Your new mxd will be pointed to this exported file geodatabase."
I have been able to export the circuit model data using Feature Class to Geodatabase (multiple), and have published it to ArcServer. Here are the questions I have:
- How are changes to the original model in WindMil Map sync'd with the server model? Do I have to go through that process all over again?
- How do I get the symbols to match the mxd I created on the server? They don't match when I try to use them in another mxd.
- Is this the correct method or is there a better method, or additional steps?
I hope this makes sense, any help is greatly appreciated!
