Hi There,

I have seen this problem with ArcGIS 9.3, ArcGIS 9.3.1 and now with ArcGIS 10.
Running the web application post-installation is good when machine names change however, I notice that it updates the rest.config with the new machine name.

In the rest.config you have something along the lines of this after running the web applications post-installation:

<ServerName>IP-0AF06A94</ServerName>
<SoapUrl>http://IP-0AF06A94/ArcGIS/services</SoapUrl>
<SoapSslUrl>https://IP-0AF06A94:443/ArcGIS/services</SoapSslUrl>

The problem is that IP-0AF06A94 is not a valid IP address address for a AGS that will be exposed. During the GIS Server post-installation you specify the web server name which adds the URL's to the SOM for arcgiscache, arcgisoutput etc. Can these be added into this config as well?

I have to go through and manually update them everytime.

<ServerName>IP-0AF06A94</ServerName>
<SoapUrl>http://ts1.eaglegis.co.nz/ArcGIS/services</SoapUrl>
<SoapSslUrl>https://ts1.demos.eaglegis.co.nz:443/ArcGIS/services</SoapSslUrl>

Cheers
