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. 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.


ArcGIS Server requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributables (x86 and x64). If the Visual C++ 2017 Redistributables are not already installed, running setup.exe will install them before setup.msi is launched. Setup.msi will not install if the Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributables (x86 and x64) are not already installed.

Microsoft Windows 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.

Machines with an underscore (_) in their names are not supported. Several widely used Internet host name specifications have designated the underscore character as nonstandard. Although Windows allows you to use the underscore in a machine name, it can still cause problems when you interact with other servers and platforms. For this reason, ArcGIS Enterprise will not install on servers that have an underscore in the host name.

Hardware requirements

Disk space requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder requires 10 GB of free disk space on the system drive (often the C: drive), where setup files are staged and log files are written. Additionally, the builder requires 20 GB of free disk space on the installation drive, which you will specify during setup. This disk space is necessary for completing the initial installation of components and for the storage of data, logs, and configuration files as your base deployment expands. Most users need more than 20 GB of space on their installation drive; a production system should have 50 GB or more of free disk space.

Memory requirements

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

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 support

ArcGIS Web Adaptor requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2 or later in order 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.

Supported virtualization environments

All components of ArcGIS Enterprise are fully supported on virtual environments as long as they run on supported platforms. 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.
