Upgrading an earlier version of ArcGIS Server
In this topic
The ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Server setup package is capable of upgrading 10.1 and later versions currently installed on your Linux system. To do this, follow the instructions below.
The upgrade process will restart all of your ArcGIS Server services. You should consider your ArcGIS Server site offline during the upgrade.
Single machine site
If you have a single machine ArcGIS Server site, follow the steps below to upgrade the GIS server to version 10.3.1.
Multiple machine site
If you have a multiple machine ArcGIS Server site, you'll need to upgrade each GIS server in the site to version 10.3.1. It's recommended that you upgrade each GIS server sequentially; that is, wait until the first GIS server is upgraded before applying the upgrade on the next GIS server. Each GIS server in the site must be at the same version number and be licensed exactly the same. Repeat the steps below to upgrade each GIS server to version 10.3.1.
Upgrade ArcGIS for Server
From the command prompt, launch the ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Server setup script as the same user used to install the existing earlier version, for example, <CD ROOT or untar directory>/Setup.
To launch the setup script from the ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Server setup media, click the setup script, and select the Run in Terminal button.
The setup will detect your existing earlier version of ArcGIS for Server on the target machine and prompt you to continue or exit the upgrade. For example:
========================================================================= ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Server (Linux) ========================================================================= Your ArcGIS 10.3 for Server is installed at: /home/ags/arcgis/server Confirm Settings ========================================================================= Product to upgrade: ArcGIS 10.3 for Server (Linux) Location to upgrade: /home/ags/arcgis/server Your ArcGIS 10.3 for Server will be stopped when performing the upgrade and ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Server will be started after the upgrade completes. 'y' to continue with these settings 'q' to exit without upgrading this product Enter choice [y,q] (y):
Type y and press Enter to accept the detected settings and continue with the update.
Wait while ArcGIS for Server is upgraded to 10.3.1. This may take several minutes.
After the installation completes, ArcGIS Server Manager will automatically open. It is not necessary to reauthorize ArcGIS Server or configure ArcGIS Server Manager.
If you have a multiple machine ArcGIS Server site, repeat the steps above on the remaining GIS servers in your site.
If you configured ArcGIS Web Adaptor to work with your site, you'll need to install 10.3.1 as well. For instructions, see the following applicable Web Adaptor:
