Uninstall ArcGIS Data Store

In this topic

You would uninstall ArcGIS Data Store for any of the following reasons:

  • You've moved your data store to another machine and no longer need ArcGIS Data Store installed on the old one.
  • You decide you do not want a standby machine, so you remove the standby from the data store and uninstall ArcGIS Data Store.
  • You no longer want to use ArcGIS Data Store.

Uninstalling ArcGIS Data Store also unregisters the data store from your ArcGIS Server site. Hosted feature layers that used the data in the data store and caches used by any scene layers you published to your portal will no longer function once you uninstall the software. However, the data still exists because the data store directory remains on the server after you uninstall ArcGIS Data Store. If you later decide you need the feature layers, you can register the data store with the same ArcGIS Server site.

Use one of the following methods to uninstall ArcGIS Data Store:
