Install ArcGIS Enterprise Builder

Prepare ArcGIS Enterprise Builder for installation

  1. Obtain an authorization file for the machine on which you're installing ArcGIS Enterprise Builder.
  2. Verify that your site meets the system requirements. For more information, see System requirements.
  3. Sign in as a nonroot user.
  4. Browse to the location of the downloaded setup files or insert the ArcGIS Enterprise Builder media into the appropriate drive to automatically start the setup program.

You're now ready to proceed with the ArcGIS Enterprise Builder installation.

Install ArcGIS Enterprise Builder

Complete the steps below to install ArcGIS Enterprise Builder from the setup user interface. To install ArcGIS Enterprise Builder silently from the command line, see Install ArcGIS Enterprise Builder silently.

  1. To start the ArcGIS Enterprise Builder setup, browse to the location of the downloaded setup files and run ./Setup to start the setup program.

  2. During the installation, read the license agreement and accept it, or exit if you do not agree with the terms.

  3. On the Choose Install Folder dialog box, provide the installation location for ArcGIS Enterprise Builder. All components will be installed to subdirectories at this specified location. The default location is your home directory.

    Portal for ArcGIS database services use a directory to store user-generated content, as well as the default content initially installed. The content will remain on the machine after ArcGIS Enterprise Builder has been uninstalled, enabling subsequent Portal for ArcGIS installations to use existing content. A content directory will be created at <Install Folder>/usr/arcgisportal (for example, /home/gisuser/arcgis/usr/arcgisportal).

    An installation folder must be specified for the installation of ArcGIS Enterprise Builder components.

    You cannot install ArcGIS Enterprise Builder on a shared network directory (NFS mounted folder). The directory must be local on the target system.

  4. An installation of ArcGIS Enterprise Builder requires a valid authorization file for both ArcGIS Server and Portal for ArcGIS. You need to have both of these product's authorization files prior to installing. On the Software Authorization dialog box, provide the location of your ArcGIS Server authorization file that you received from Customer Service. This can be a .prvc file or .ecp file.

  5. Note:

    The Portal for ArcGIS authorization file will be provided as a JSON file to the enterprise configuration after the setup completes.

    Specify the location for your ArcGIS Server authorization file.

  6. To complete the installation, follow the directions on the screen. After the installation completes, postinstallation steps appear.
