ArcGIS Enterprise Builder 10.7.x system requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise, the next evolution of the ArcGIS Server product line, has a flexible deployment model allowing for use completely on-premises, in the cloud, or a combination of the two. The ArcGIS Enterprise Builder product includes the following software components that are designed to work together:

  • ArcGIS Server
  • Portal for ArcGIS
  • ArcGIS Data Store
  • ArcGIS Web Adaptor

ArcGIS Image Server, ArcGIS GeoEvent Server, ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server, and ArcGIS Business Analyst for Server are specialized licensing roles for ArcGIS Server. See What is ArcGIS Enterprise for more information.

The system and hardware requirements required to run ArcGIS Enterprise Builder are listed below. Linux only: A diagnostics tool runs during the setup to help you determine if your machine meets the minimum system requirements. If your Portal for ArcGIS organization will use ArcGIS Pro or Drone2Map for ArcGIS, you will also need ArcGIS License Manager 2018.1 to configure licenses to specify which members can use these apps. See the Portal for ArcGIS administrator guide, License Manager reference guide, and the License Manager system requirements for more information.

It's recommended that you review the deprecation notice to determine if your hardware and software components are still compatible with version 10.7.1, and to review all current system requirements of the individual products at ArcGIS Enterprise Installation Guides documentation.

Linux operating system requirements

The following 64-bit operating systems satisfy the minimum operating system requirements. Support is not provided for 32-bit operating systems; the setup will only proceed if the operating system is 64 bit. ArcGIS Enterprise is only supported on Linux x86_64, on CPUs that adhere to the x86_64 architecture (64 bit), with supported Linux releases.

Machines with an underscore (_) in the name are not supported. The setup will not proceed if an underscore is detected in the machine name.

The software should not be installed on an OS (binary) that has been modified. Esri does not provide support for products installed on a developer's release of an operating system.

You cannot install the software as a root user. If you attempt to do this, the installation will not proceed, and a software diagnostics tool will display an error message indicating that you cannot install as root.

A Java Application Server and the Java Linux Web Adaptor needs to be installed prior to Enterprise Builder in order to complete the setup and configuration.

Supported operating systemsLatest update or service pack tested

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Server 7

Update 6

RHEL Server 6

Update 10

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12

Service Pack 4

Ubuntu Server LTS 18


Ubuntu Server LTS 16


CentOS Linux 7


CentOS Linux 6


Scientific Linux 7


Scientific Linux 6


Oracle Linux 7

Update 6

Oracle Linux 6

Update 10

Prior and future updates or service packs on these operating systems are supported unless otherwise stated. The operating system version and updates must also be supported by the operating system provider.


Esri Technical Support is available for CentOS, Scientific Linux, and Oracle Linux versions that provide full binary compatibility with an equivalent supported RHEL Server version. As a prerequisite for logging a defect, any software issue on these operating systems will be attempted to be reproduced on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server. For Oracle Linux, support is predicated on the use of the RHEL Server compatible kernel.


The X Window System package group is required on the machine to run the following using the operating system graphical user interface (GUI):

  • ArcGIS Enterprise Builder installation wizard
  • ArcGIS Software Authorization Wizard
  • Check for Updates tool

Hardware requirements

Disk space requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder requires 25 GB of free disk space. The location you provide as your installation drive during setup must have a minimum of 23 GB of free disk space for installation to proceed. Additionally, 2 GB of space must be available on the system's /tmp folder to allow for extraction of the setup.

Memory requirements

It is strongly recommended to have at least 16 GB of memory to install ArcGIS Enterprise Builder.

Supported virtualization environments

All components of ArcGIS Enterprise are fully supported on virtual environments as long as they run on supported operating systems. When running third-party applications with ArcGIS Enterprise, such as relational databases, the application must also be supported in a virtual environment. Check the third-party vendor for its virtualization support.

The following virtualization environments are known to perform well with ArcGIS Enterprise and its components:

  • VMware vSphere 6.5, 6.7
  • Microsoft Hyper-V

Inclusion on the above list does not imply an endorsement or higher level of support. A lack of inclusion on the above list does not imply that an environment or specific version is not supported, simply that it is not an environment or version that Esri or its partners have explicitly tested.
