ArcGIS Enterprise Builder 10.8.x system requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder deploys ArcGIS Enterprise on a single machine on premises. The system and hardware requirements required to run ArcGIS Enterprise Builder are listed below.

If you will license ArcGIS Pro, ArcGIS Pro extensions, or ArcGIS Drone2Map through ArcGIS Enterprise, you also need ArcGIS License Manager 2019.2 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.

Before you implement or upgrade an ArcGIS Enterprise deployment using ArcGIS Enterprise Builder, review the deprecation notice to determine if your hardware and software components are still compatible with version 10.8.1. Also review all current system requirements of the individual product components. You can access this information from the ArcGIS Enterprise Installation Guides documentation.


ArcGIS Enterprise components require the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015–2019 Redistributable (x64) minimum version 14.22.27821. Obtain the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015–2019 file from the Microsoft site.

If the Visual C++ 2015 - 2019 Redistributables are not already installed, running the ArcGIS Enterprise Builder setup.exe will install them for you. However, running the ArcGIS Enterprise Builder setup.msi directly will not install the redistributables. If the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 - 2019 Redistributables (x64) are not already installed, running the setup.msi will fail to run ArcGIS Enterprise Builder.

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 components will not install on servers that have an underscore in the host name.

Hardware requirements

Disk space requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder (Windows) 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.

Firewall settings

The components in a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment communicate on specific ports. You need to open these ports on your firewall before installing the software.

ArcGIS Web Adaptor communicates over ports 80 and 443. See the following for information on the ports used by each additional component that is installed using ArcGIS Enterprise Builder:

Trusted certificates

ArcGIS Enterprise deployments require HTTPS to be enabled on the machine where the base deployment is installed. For details, review steps to enable HTTPS on your web server.

If your deployment's web server is IIS, find out how to use a sample script to create a domain certificate.

Supported web browsers

The ArcGIS Enterprise Configuration Wizard supports the following web browsers:

  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11*
  • Microsoft Edge

*Use of Internet Explorer 11 is deprecated at this release. Esri highly encourages you to move to one of the other browsers listed above. While Internet Explorer 11 is still supported with the current release, use of Internet Explorer 11 is generally discouraged, and support will be discontinued at a future release. Additional notice will be provided prior to the removal of support.

Supported virtualization environments and cloud platforms

Virtualization and cloud environment support is the same for all components of a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment. See ArcGIS Enterprise on cloud platforms and Supported virtualization environments in ArcGIS Enterprise system requirements for details.
