An overview of ArcGIS Data Store configuration

Follow these steps to configure ArcGIS Data Store for use with Portal for ArcGIS.

Note that you must create an ArcGIS GIS Server site before you can create a data store.

  1. Configure ArcGIS Server and Portal for ArcGIS.
  2. Install ArcGIS Data Store.
  3. If you require communication with ArcGIS Data Store always be authenticated through SSL using a certificate from a certifying authority, replace the default ArcGIS Data Store certificate.
  4. Create a relational, tile cache, or spatiotemporal big data store.
  5. If you require high availability for your data store, add a data store machine.
  6. Specify a shared location for backups.
  7. If you require different types of data stores be used with your portal's hosting server, repeat steps 2 through 5 on additional machines.
