Silently installing ArcGIS Web Adaptor

ArcGIS Web Adaptor can be installed by running the setup program using Windows Installer command line parameters as described below. Alternatively, you can install from the user interface using Setup.exe.

Installation behavior and requirements

The version of ArcGIS Web Adaptor must always match the version of Portal for ArcGISyou're using.

ArcGIS Web Adaptorcan be installed side by side with other versions. You are not required to uninstall ArcGIS Web Adaptor to install ArcGIS Web Adaptor and ArcGIS Web Adaptor is not an upgrade of previous releases.

Each ArcGIS Web Adaptor must have its own unique name; you cannot have two Web Adaptors with the same name on a single web server.

ArcGIS Web Adaptor and Tomcat do not need to be installed on the same machine if you will configure the Web Adaptor with the portal through your browser. However, if you will configure the Web Adaptor using the configurewebadaptor.exe tool, the Web Adaptor and Tomcat must be installed on the same machine.

Upgrade an earlier version of ArcGIS Web Adaptor

To upgrade an earlier version of ArcGIS Web Adaptor to 10.6, you need to uninstall the earlier version, and install the 10.6 setup. During the 10.6 installation, you'll specify the same name as your earlier Web Adaptor. This guarantees your Web Adaptor URL will remain identical to the earlier version.

After installing 10.6, you need to configure ArcGIS Web Adaptor with Portal for ArcGIS.

Legacy:

At 10.2 and earlier versions, running the setup upgraded all existing Web Adaptors to the latest version.

Installing ArcGIS Web Adaptor silently

The following are the Windows Installer command line parameters to be used when installing ArcGIS Web Adaptor silently:

  • INSTALLDIR=<installation location>

    This property allows you to specify the installation location of ArcGIS Web Adaptor from the command line. If you do not set this property, the default installation location of C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\WebAdaptor10.6\java\ is used.

    For example:

    <path to ArcGIS Web Adaptor (Java Platform) setup download>\setup.exe INSTALLDIR="C:\NewInstallDir" /qb

  • Use the following command to install ArcGIS Web Adaptor silently without specifying the installation location:

    <path to ArcGIS Web Adaptor (Java Platform) setup download>\setup.exe /qb

After ArcGIS Web Adaptor is installed, it must be configured. For more information, see Configuring ArcGIS Web Adaptor.

Note:

After installation, ArcGIS Web Adaptor will display in the language specified by your Java application server. To change the language, consult the product documentation for your Java application server.
