    • 4 ArcGIS for Server on AWS includes an AMI for a preconfigured enterprise geodatabase.Optionally, you can use Cloud Builder to configure your site with an enterprise geodatabaselocated on AWS. To do this, check the box for Include enterprise geodatabase, select theMicrosoft SQL Server instance you need, choose an Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance typefrom the drop-down menu, and click Next. Otherwise, skip this step by clicking Next. An ArcGIS for Server site requires a primary site administrator account. Enter the user name andpassword and then click Next. It is recommended that you write down the primary siteadministrator user name and password and keep that information in a safe place. Review your site configuration and then click Finish.Now that youve created an ArcGIS for Server site, you should test your site by using the ArcGIS ServerManager application to review a sample map service.Step 5: Use ArcGIS Server Manager to test that your site is working. You should now have a site listed in Cloud Builder. Expand the site and then click the ManagerURL link to open ArcGIS Server Manager. Before logging in to ArcGIS Server Manager, take a moment to look at the URL in your browsersaddress bar. This URL (minus /manager/login.html?url) is the address of your ArcGIS for Serversite. You will need this URL later in step 7. You can copy the URL (minus/manager/login.html?url) and paste it into your text editor or simply leave ArcGIS Server Manageropen after this step. Now, log in to ArcGIS Server Manager by entering the user name and password of the primarysite administrator account that you specified in the previous step.

Here, you will be able to interact with theSampleWorldCities service in a sample JavaScript application in your browser. Go back to ArcGIS Server Manager, click the Site tab, and then click Machines. Here you willsee your single machine running in your site. Keep ArcGIS Server Manager open.After testing the sample map service, which has already been published to your site, you should testpublishing a map service using ArcGIS for Desktop. In most cases, you will use ArcGIS for Desktop toauthor the map, imagery, and GIS content and publish that content to ArcGIS for Server. In the nextsteps, you will get some data from ArcGIS Online and then use ArcGIS for Desktop to publish it to ArcGISfor Server.
    • 5Step 6: Get layer data from ArcGIS Online to test publishing a service. Go to ArcGIS Online. In the Search box, enter county layer and press Enter. Click the USA Counties link to open the layer package item. On the item description page, click the Open button and choose Open in ArcGIS for Desktop. Depending on your operating system and settings, you may need to either click OK or chooseOpen to download the file. It may take a few minutes to download the file and open ArcGIS forDesktop.Step 7: Test publishing a service using ArcGIS for Desktop. In ArcGIS for Desktop, zoom in on the USA Counties layer to an area of interest. The view willrepresent the initial extent users will see when they view your service. Click File, click Share As, and then choose Service. In the Share as Service wizard, make sure Publish as Service is selected and then click Next. For Choose a connection, click the Add ArcGIS Server button. In the Add ArcGIS Server window, choose Administer GIS Server. For Server URL, copy your ArcGIS for Server URL from your text editor or from ArcGIS ServerManager (minus /manager/login.html?url) and paste it here. Enter your primary site administrator user name and password and then click Finish. Enter a service name (no spaces or special characters) and click Next. For Publish service to folder, either choose Use existing folder or create a new folder, then clickContinue. In the Service Editor window, review the different properties of the service and remember tocomplete the Item Description section; otherwise, your service will not publish. Click the Analyze tab. Assuming there are no errors to fix, click the Publish tab. Publishing the USA Counties servicewill take a few minutes. Once the publishing process is complete, go back to the Manage Services tab in ArcGIS ServerManager and refresh the page by pressing F5.
    • 6 Your newly published service should appear in the list. Click the link for your service. Click Capabilities and then, under the URLs section, click the REST URL link. This will open theServices Directory to the full metadata page for your new service. You can view the service in several applications to test its capabilities and performance. In theView In section, click ArcGIS JavaScript. Here, you will be able to interact with your service in asample JavaScript application in your browser.Now that youve tested publishing a service, you can try using that service in other applications.Step 8: Try using your service in other applications.Using ArcGIS Online Go to ArcGIS Online and click Map. Click the Add drop-down menu and choose Search for Layers. Click the drop-down menu for In, then choose A GIS Server. Enter the URL for your ArcGIS for Server site. Select your service from the list and then click Done Adding Layers.For additional details, see Searching for layers.
