Enabling IIS and required IIS components on Windows Server 2012/2012 R2

The ArcGIS Web Adaptor requires that IIS be enabled and specific IIS components be enabled on Windows Server 2012/2012 R2. The setup will not proceed if IIS is not detected and specific IIS components are not enabled.

If you've already enabled IIS but are missing the required IIS components, the installation will display a message indicating that certain IIS components are missing. You have the option to allow the installation to automatically enable the required IIS components. However, depending on your organization's security policies, it may be necessary to manually enable the required IIS components, as described below.

To learn how to enable IIS and the required IIS components on Windows Server 2012/2012 R2, see the instructions below.

  1. Open Server Manager and click Manage > Add Roles and Features. Click Next.
