Hi Peoples,

Our admin created a new install of ArcGIS Server 10.6.1. Fine so far.


We have a large number of services, and a large number of users and roles. To create the site, they took the backup from the 10.3.1 ArcGIS Server, and restored it into the 10.6.1 install. The System and Utuilties did not come over, so they copied data from the /agsDirectories/directories/arcgissystem/arcgisinput over.


I am not 100% confident in this set up.

I was just looking over the Upgrade notes:


Upgrade ArcGIS Server


There is mention of running <Server install directory>/tools/upgradeserver/

What does this do?

Thought on the install process?
