Operations Server Configuration scripts
Python Batchfile
Latest commit 5768cf4 Oct 19, 2016 @elinz elinz committed on GitHub Merge pull request #1582 from Esri/v.next



The Operations Server Configuration is a collection of Python scripts and batch files that automate the installation of the ArcGIS platform on Windows machines and the publication of Portal for ArcGIS content and ArcGIS for Server services. While developed for an implementation of the ArcGIS Platform with a specific software configuration and content (i.e. Operations Server), the scripts can be modified to meet your requirements.

The goals of the scripts are to:

  • Automate the software installation and configuration process as much as possible.
  • Ensure a consistent and repeatable process.
  • Reduce the time necessary to install software and deploy content.
  • Simplify the complete portal deployment of Esri’s Military and Intelligence solution.
