00:04In this video I will demonstrate how to install ArcGIS 10.1 for Server on a Windows machine.

00:11When you launch the setup you’ll see a welcome screen...

00:15...and as you go to the next panel you’ll be prompted to read the license agreement.

00:20If you accept the license agreement and go to the next panel, you’ll see the components...

00:24...of ArcGIS for Server that you can install.

00:27In ArcGIS 10.1 for Server, there is no SOM or SOC component... you used in previous releases.

00:35Instead, there’s just one component called the GIS Server.

00:38You can optionally install .NET Extension Support, which allows you to develop .NET...

00:44...server object extensions that extend the base functionality of ArcGIS Server using ArcObjects.

00:50There are no prerequisites to install to get either of these features...

00:54...and neither of them requires any type of postinstallation.

00:59Notice that these features are installed in the 64-bit Program Files directory.

01:04ArcGIS 10.1 for Server is a native 64-bit application, and you must be running...

01:09...a 64-bit operating system in order to proceed with the install.

01:15You’ll be prompted on the next panel to confirm the Python installation directory.

01:20Python 2.7 is installed with ArcGIS 10.1 for Server.

01:25It’s necessary in order to support certain core geoprocessing functions.

01:30On the next panel, you’ll need to supply the ArcGIS Server account.

01:35This is an account that is used to run the ArcGIS Server service.

01:39It can be a local account or a domain account.

01:42It does not have to be an administrator on the machine.

01:46By default, the ArcGIS Server account is a local account called arcgis...

01:50...that will be created for you.

01:53I’ll take the default, by choosing a password, and then typing it again to confirm.

02:00This account will be given the necessary permissions to run the ArcGIS Server service...

02:05...however, after installation, I will need to manually grant this account permissions... access the data folders on my server.

02:12On the next panel, I’m asked if I want to export a configuration file.

02:16A configuration file can be useful if I’m installing ArcGIS Server on many machines...

02:21...and I want to make sure that I use the same configuration (for example, the same...

02:26...ArcGIS Server account name and password) on each machine.

02:30If you decide to export this file, you should keep it in a safe location...

02:34...because it contains that name and password.

02:37On this final panel, you can choose to confirm that you want to go ahead and install...

02:42...and the files will begin installing on your machine.

02:45Version 10.1 has been optimized so that the installation completes in a...

02:49...shorter amount of time than in previous releases.

02:54Once the software has been installed, you can click Finish to exit the installation.

03:00The Software Authorization Wizard displays.

03:05You must complete this wizard to authorize your software with Esri.

03:08The steps for completing the wizard are not shown in this video because...

03:12...they may vary depending on how your organization authorizes ArcGIS for Server.

03:17Once you complete the Software Authorization Wizard, click Finish.

03:24Then you’ll see a web browser displaying ArcGIS Server Manager.

03:28Manager will help you with the process of either creating a new site...

03:32...or joining an existing ArcGIS Server site.

03:36Then you can begin working with ArcGIS Server.

I don't anticipate we'll make a new set of videos, since the 10.2 installation is identical to 10.1. So feel free to continue using this video at 10.2. To learn more about what's new in ArcGIS 10.2 for Server, see:

Is the ArcGIS Server team going to make a set of video clips like this for 10.2 Server installation? This was a great help! Janie

To manually grant the account permissions, just use the operating system tools. For example, on Windows you can bring up the folder properties in Windows Explorer and click the "Security" tab, then add the ArcGIS Server account and give it read and write permissions. See this topic for more detail on which permissions are needed:

How do you manually grant the account permissions to access the data folders on the server?
