ArcGIS Enterprise Builder 10.9 system requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder deploys ArcGIS Enterprise on a single machine on premises. 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 you will license ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Pro extensions, or ArcGIS Drone2Map through ArcGIS Enterprise, you also need ArcGIS License Manager 2020.0 or a later release 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.

Before you implement or upgrade an ArcGIS Enterprise deployment using ArcGIS Enterprise Builder, review the deprecation notice to determine if your hardware and software components are still compatible with the current release of ArcGIS Enterprise Builder. Also review all current system requirements of the individual product components. You can access this information from the 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 only proceeds 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 does 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 need to be installed prior to ArcGIS Enterprise Builder to complete the set up and configuration.

Prior and future updates or service packs for these operating system versions 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 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server version. As a prerequisite for logging a software defect, Esri Technical Support will attempt to reproduce the issue on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server. For Oracle Linux, support is predicated on the use of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server compatible kernel.

Hardware requirements

Disk space requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder (Linux) 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.

Firewall settings

The components in a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment communicate on specific ports. You need to open these ports on your firewall before installing the software.

ArcGIS Web Adaptor communicates over ports 80 and 443. See the following for information on the ports used by each additional component that is installed using ArcGIS Enterprise Builder:

Trusted certificates

ArcGIS Enterprise deployments require HTTPS to be enabled on the machine where the base deployment is installed. For details, review steps to enable HTTPS on your web server.

Supported web browsers

The ArcGIS Enterprise Configuration Wizard supports the following web browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge

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.
