    Installation Instructions



    • Ensure that your hardware and software meet the ArcGIS system requirements.
    • Ensure that your hardware and software meet the ArcFM supported versions. You can search for supported versions on the lower left panel of the GIS Support place.
    • ArcFM Server 10.2.1c SP3 requires a complete upgrade to ArcGIS 10.2.1. ArcGIS must be upgraded before you upgrade to ArcFM Server 10.2.1c SP3.
    • When you upgrade to ArcFM Server 10.2.1c SP3, you must upgrade all ArcFM Solution products. Mixed versions of ArcFM Solution products are not supported.
    • ArcFM Server 10.2.1c SP3 requires that you have ArcFM Server 10.2.1c installed.
    • Anti-Spyware applications must be disabled before installation to avoid interference with the installation. They may be restarted after installation is complete.



    • After you upgrade to ArcGIS 10.2.1 or higher, remove any existing version of the ArcFM Server "Server Object Extension" (SOE) in ArcGIS Server Manager.
    • After you upgrade to ArcFM Server 10.2.1c SP3, the ArcFM Server SOE must be installed on any machine that hosts ArcGIS Server.


    Perform the following steps, in sequence, to install ArcFM Server:

    1. In ArgGIS Server Manager, select Site > Extensions > Add Extension.
    2. Find Miner.Server.soe and click the X to delete it.
    3. Navigate to the folder that contains the ArcFM_Server1021cSP3.msp and double-click that file.
    4. Follow the instructions to complete the installation.
    5. In ArgGIS Server Manager, select Site > Extensions > Add Extension.
    6. Click Choose File and browse to the new version of the Miner.Server.soe. It is located by default in C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Server\bin. Click Add.
    7. Click Services. Select the ArcFM service to which you want to add the SOE.
      • Select Capabilities and click the ArcFMMapServer checkbox.
      • Click Save and Restart.
    8. Repeat step 7 for each service, as necessary.



    • Each system that hosts an ArcGIS Server component must have the corresponding ArcFM Server component. After you install the ArcFM Server SOE, you are prompted to supply the network name of the license server. This must be run on every ArcGIS Server machine.
    • To change the license server later, access the start menu under ArcFM Solution -> ArcFM Server.
    • The  "Register ArcFM SOE" tool must be run one time per site. The ArcGIS Server site is typically created by logging into ArcGIS Server Manager the first time.


    Known Issues


    • Autoupdaters - There are certain Autoupdaters that will not function with ArcFM Server. See the ArcFM Solution Appendix for a list of Autoupdaters that are not compatible with ArcFM Server.
    • Identify - Features are returned incorrectly when you identify on a layer with an outer join and the feature does not have a related record. (Esri Bug NIM092688)
    • Join Layers - Layers with joins may not work correctly with ArcFM Properties.
    • Map Services - Some map services, depending on their coordinate system, may have issues with tracing and locate when a basemap in a different projection is also present.
    • Related Data - Querying related data does not work when querying on a joined layer. (Esri Bug NIM102137)
    • Special Characters - Special characters in layer names, e.g., <, *, and &, can cause unexpected behavior.
    • Select by Attributes - The LIKE operator does not work in ArcMap 10.1 when querying a joined ArcFM feature class using the CONVERT (SQL Server) or TO_CHAR(Oracle) function. The operation fails when queried against the ObjectID field.
    • Server-Side Printing - Server-side printing with the Text Redlines layer enabled causes the printing process to fail unless the Text Redlines layer is named TEXT.
    • Plug-In Workspace - There is a limitation for any plug-in workspace that is published to ArcGIS. This affects ArcFM Feeder Manager 2 joins. A hot-fix is planned to resolve this problem in ArcGIS for Server 10.4. (Esri BUG-000095875, Hotfix #HF-000003729)
    • Help - Our context sensitive help opens two tabs in a web browser. (Esri BUG-000096609)




    The ArcFM Solution Resource Center offers the latest Using and Configuration Guides for each product. You can view this information before installing the latest release.


    SDK Installer: To install the ArcFM Solution SDK Documentation, the Microsoft Windows SDK or Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 must be installed. The SDK installer is a large file to download (~600MB). With 10.0.3, we changed the developer help format in order to integrate with Visual Studio 2010. A result of this new format, in conjunction with the volume of developer help, is a very slow installation process. Installing the SDK will take several minutes. The ArcFM Solution Resource Center contains everything available in the SDK installer plus additional information such as free tools and technical white papers.
