00:06In this video, I will demonstrate how to register file-based data with ArcGIS 10.1 for Server.

00:12When publishing GIS services, the server needs to access the data.

00:16In 10.1, data registration is a recommended task that provides ArcGIS Server...

00:21...a list of data locations that it can access.

00:24If ArcGIS Server detects that you’re using data from an unregistered location...

00:28...the data is copied to the server automatically to ensure the service works correctly.

00:32Registering data locations can suppress this data copying.

00:36When publishing across machines, data registration allows ArcGIS Server...

00:40...to adjust the file paths to your data.

00:42You can register any local or shared directory with ArcGIS Server.

00:46When you register a directory, all subdirectories under the root folder you...

00:50...specify are also registered with the server.

00:53Keep in mind that when you register your directories...

00:55...the ArcGIS Server account is not granted permissions to access your data.

01:00Before registering, you'll need to ensure that the ArcGIS Server account has at least read...

01:04...permissions to the data.

01:05Granting permissions is beyond the scope of this video...

01:08...but I wanted to emphasize this is an important step to complete before registering your data.

01:13There are a couple of scenarios you may encounter when attempting to register...

01:16...your file-based data with ArcGIS Server.

01:19For example, data in your directory can be accessed by ArcGIS Server...

01:23...or, the data in your directory cannot be accessed by ArcGIS Server.

01:28In this video, I’ll cover these scenarios by using a map document as an example.

01:32I’m going to do the data registration in ArcGIS for Desktop...

01:35...but I could alternatively use ArcGIS Server Manager to register the data...

01:39...the dialogs are similar.

01:42To get started, I’ll right-click my publisher connection to ArcGIS Server...

01:45...and choose Server Properties.

01:47In the Server Properties dialog box, I’ll click the Data Store tab.

01:52This is where I’ll register my data.

01:54The first scenario I’d like to cover is registering a data directory that can...

01:58...already be accessed by ArcGIS Server.

02:01In this scenario, my map document references data in a shared network directory...

02:05...that is visible to both ArcGIS for Desktop and ArcGIS Server.

02:09When I publish my map document as a map service...

02:12...ArcGIS Server will be able to view and access the data in the same shared directory.

02:17I’ll use my map service to demonstrate this.

02:20Next to the Registered Folders dialog box, I’ll click Add.

02:24I’ll enter a unique name for the registered folder...

02:27...and specify the path to the shared network directory that contains the data...

02:30...referenced by my map document.

02:32Once I’ve entered the path, I’ll make sure Same as publisher folder path is selected.

02:38I’ll click OK to register the folder with ArcGIS Server.

02:42The name I entered for the folder appears on the Registered Folders dialog box.

02:46Now, I’ll publish my map document.

02:52After publishing, I’ll verify that my map service is referencing the shared network directory...

02:57...used by my original map document.

02:59I’ll right-click my map service and choose Service Workspaces.

03:02I see that my map service is using the shared directory.

03:07The second scenario I’d like to cover is registering a data directory...

03:11...that cannot be accessed by ArcGIS Server.

03:13You may encounter this scenario because of differences between computing platforms...

03:17...firewalls, the desire to keep a separate copy of the data for web use...

03:21...or publishing to a cloud-based environment...

03:23...such as ArcGIS Server on Amazon Web Services.

03:26Due to one or a variety of these factors, you’ll need to...

03:29...manually place a copy of your data on the server before you publish.

03:33When you publish, the data paths are automatically modified...

03:36...to reference the data directory on the server.

03:39I’ll use my map service to demonstrate this.

03:42Next to the Registered Folders dialog box, I’ll click Add.

03:47I’ll enter a unique name for the registered folder and specify the path to my local data directory.

03:52This is the data currently referenced by my map document.

03:55Since my server uses a different data directory, I’ll uncheck Same as publisher folder path...

04:00...and specify the folder on the server.

04:02Prior to recording this video, I placed a copy of the data referenced...

04:05...by my map document in this directory.

04:08I’ll click OK to register the folders with ArcGIS Server.

04:11The name I entered for the folders appears on the Registered Folders dialog box.

04:16Now, I’ll publish my map document.

04:22After publishing, I’ll verify that my map service is referencing the directory on the server.

04:27I’ll right-click my map service and choose Service Workspaces.

04:31I see that my map service is using the server’s directory.
