Service failed to start after moving server directories.

Hi All,

 

I am receiving an error when trying to restart a service in Server Manager after moving my config-store and server directories. The error states that "Service failed to start" and is looking for files in the old directories location.

 

I am on Windows and at ArcGIS for Server 10.4.1. I originally moved the directories from a local drive to a new VM and joined a second server to my site. Everything was working fine after this move. Now, I got a new file server and would like to move the directories to this new VM. I changed the config-store and server directories using Server Manager and when I login to server admin, the new location is what I see, as well. However, I am unable to get my services to recognize the new location.

 

I have stopped and restarted the ArcGIS Service on both server machines. I have attempted to stop and start the individual services.

 

Is there some other hoop I need to jump through to get my services to realize that they can no longer use the old files?

 

Thanks, Janice.

 

Here is the message displayed in Server Manager when I try to start the service:

Service failed to start

Can not open file \\OLDSERVER\arcgis_server\directories\arcgissystem\arcgisinput\Assessor\PropertyMapMobile.MapServer\extracted\v101\PropertyMapM.msd. The network name cannot be found. Probable cause: The file is inaccessible to Server.
