The version of ArcGIS Web Adaptor must always match the version of Portal for ArcGIS you're using.
ArcGIS Web Adaptor can be installed side by side with other versions. You are not required to uninstall ArcGIS Web Adaptor to install ArcGIS Web Adaptor, and ArcGIS Web Adaptor is not an upgrade of previous releases.
Each ArcGIS Web Adaptor must have its own unique name; you cannot have two Web Adaptors with the same name on a single web server. If a naming conflict is detected during the installation, a warning message is displayed. You must uninstall the earlier version with the same name to resolve the conflict. Alternatively, you can change the name of one of the Web Adaptors to proceed with the installation.
ArcGIS Web Adaptor and Tomcat do not need to be installed on the same machine if you will configure the Web Adaptor with the portal through your browser. However, if you will configure the Web Adaptor using the configurewebadaptor.exe tool, the Web Adaptor and Tomcat must be installed on the same machine.
In earlier versions, ArcGIS Web Adaptor required Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 (SP1), 4.0, or 4.5 to be installed.
After ArcGIS Web Adaptor is installed, it must be configured. For more information, see Configure ArcGIS Web Adaptor.
Upgrade an earlier version of ArcGIS Web Adaptor
To upgrade an earlier version of ArcGIS Web Adaptor to 10.8.1, you must uninstall the earlier version, and install the 10.8.1 setup. During the 10.8.1 installation, you'll specify the same name as your earlier Web Adaptor. This guarantees your Web Adaptor URL will remain identical to the earlier version.
If a naming conflict is detected during the 10.8.1 installation, a warning message is displayed. You must uninstall the earlier version with the same name to perform the upgrade.
After installing 10.8.1, you must configure ArcGIS Web Adaptor with Portal for ArcGIS.
At 10.2 and earlier versions, running the setup upgraded all existing Web Adaptors to the latest version.
Installing ArcGIS Web Adaptor silently
The following are the Windows Installer command line parameters to be used when installing ArcGIS Web Adaptor silently:
- INSTALLDIR=<installation location>
This property allows you to specify the installation location of ArcGIS Web Adaptor from the command line. If you do not set this property, the default installation location of C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\WebAdaptor10.8.1\java\ is used.
<path to ArcGIS Web Adaptor (Java Platform) setup download>\setup.exe INSTALLDIR="C:\NewInstallDir" /qb
- Use the following command to install ArcGIS Web Adaptor silently without specifying the installation location:
<path to ArcGIS Web Adaptor (Java Platform) setup download>\setup.exe /qb
After ArcGIS Web Adaptor is installed, it must be configured. For more information, see Configuring ArcGIS Web Adaptor.
After installation, ArcGIS Web Adaptor will display in the language specified by your Java application server. To change the language, consult the product documentation for your Java application server.
