Legacy:

ArcGIS Web Adaptor 10.4.x supports Java 7 and 8. ArcGIS Web Adaptor 10.5.x and 10.6.x support only Java 8. ArcGIS Web Adaptor 10.7.x supports Java 8, Java 11, and Java 12.

Maximum installation instances

You can install a maximum of 21 instances of ArcGIS Web Adaptor (IIS) on a single machine. If more instances are required, install them on a separate machine.

If you have earlier versions installed on the machine, you are not required to uninstall them. For example, you can have five instances of ArcGIS Web Adaptor 10.4 and 21 instances of ArcGIS Web Adaptor 10.8.1 installed on the same machine. The maximum value only applies to instances of the same software version.

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 support

ArcGIS Web Adaptor (IIS) requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 or later to be installed. If your operating system includes Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2, make sure it's enabled using Windows Features. If your operating system does not include Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2, you can download it from the installation media and enable it using Windows Features.

Microsoft IIS required components

ArcGIS Web Adaptor (IIS) supports IIS in Windows 8.1, 10, Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016, and 2019 Standard/DataCenter. This corresponds to IIS versions 8.0, 8.5, and 10. IIS must be enabled along with specific IIS 8.0, 8.5, and 10 components. The setup will not proceed if IIS is not detected and specific IIS components enabled.

If you already have IIS 8.0, 8.5, or 10 installed but are missing required IIS components, the setup will display the IIS requirements verification dialog box. This gives you the option to allow the installation to automatically enable any missing required IIS components. To do this, click I agree. To learn more, see the Automatically enabling IIS components section.

Note:

If you're going to perform a silent installation of ArcGIS Web Adaptor, all required IIS components must be enabled manually. The setup will not automatically enable missing IIS components when you perform a silent installation.

To learn how to enable IIS on your operating system and optionally enable the missing IIS 8.0, 8.5, or 10 components on your own, see the following:

Supported web browsers

The Web Adaptor Configuration wizard supports the following web browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11*
  • Microsoft Edge (new) and Edge Legacy (This is the last release in which Edge Legacy is supported.)

*Use of Internet Explorer 11 is deprecated at this release. Esri highly encourages you to move to one of the other browsers listed above. While Internet Explorer 11 is still supported with the current release, use of Internet Explorer 11 is generally discouraged, and support will be discontinued at a future release. Additional notice will be provided prior to the removal of support.

Supported virtualization environments and cloud platforms

Virtualization and cloud environment support is the same for all components of a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment. See ArcGIS Enterprise on cloud platforms and Supported virtualization environments in ArcGIS Enterprise system requirements for details.
