ArcGIS Enterprise Builder 10.8 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. Linux only: A diagnostics tool runs during the setup to help you determine if your machine meets the minimum system requirements. I

If you will be licensing ArcGIS Pro or Drone2Map for ArcGIS through your Portal for ArcGIS 10.8 organization, you will 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 implementing or upgrading using ArcGIS Enterprise Builder, review the deprecation notice to determine if your hardware and software components are still compatible with version 10.8. Also review all current system requirements of the individual product components. You can access this information from the ArcGIS Enterprise Installation Guides documentation.

Linux 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.

ArcGIS Enterprise is only supported on Linux x86_64, on CPUs that adhere to the x86_64 architecture (64 bit), with supported Linux releases.

Machines with an underscore (_) in the name are not supported. The setup will not proceed if an underscore is detected in the machine name.

The software should not be installed on an OS (binary) that has been modified. Esri does not provide support for products installed on a developer's release of an operating system.

You cannot install the software as a root user. If you attempt to do this, the installation will not proceed, and a software diagnostics tool will display an error message indicating that you cannot install as root.

A Java Application Server and the Java Linux Web Adaptor need to be installed prior to ArcGIS Enterprise Builder to complete the setup and configuration.

Supported operating systemsLatest update or service pack tested

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Server 7

Oracle Linux 6

Update 10

Prior and future updates or service packs on these operating system versions are supported unless otherwise stated. The operating system version and updates must also be supported by the operating system provider.


Esri Technical Support is available for CentOS, Scientific Linux, and Oracle Linux versions that provide full binary compatibility with an equivalent supported RHEL Server version. As a prerequisite for logging a defect, any software issue on these operating systems will be attempted to be reproduced on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server. For Oracle Linux, support is predicated on the use of the RHEL Server compatible kernel.


The X Window System package group is required on the machine to run the following using the operating system graphical user interface (GUI):

  • ArcGIS Enterprise Builder installation wizard
  • ArcGIS Software Authorization Wizard
  • Check for Updates tool

Hardware requirements

Disk space requirements

ArcGIS Enterprise Builder (Linux) requires 25 GB of free disk space. The location you provide as your installation drive during setup must have a minimum of 23 GB of free disk space for installation to proceed. Additionally, 2 GB of space must be available on the system's /tmp folder to allow for extraction of the setup.

Memory requirements

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

Firewall settings

The components in a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment communicate on specific ports. You'll need to open these ports on your firewall before installing the software. See the following for information on the ports used by each component:

Supported web browsers

The ArcGIS Enterprise Configuration Wizard supports the following web browsers:

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

ArcGIS Enterprise on cloud platforms

You can deploy ArcGIS Enterprise on many cloud platforms. Any cloud platform that provides virtual machines that meet the basic system requirements for operating system and system specifications is supported for use with ArcGIS Enterprise.

In addition to basic support, Esri provides deployment tooling and prebuilt virtual machine images on two cloud platforms: Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. When deploying on these two cloud platforms, it's recommended that you use the specialized tooling and images to simplify deployment and technical support.

Esri does not provide technical support for provisioning and configuring cloud infrastructure beyond what ArcGIS Enterprise deployment tooling creates and manages as part of its normal operations. For cloud platforms for which Esri does not provide specialized deployment tooling, support is limited to troubleshooting software-specific issues.

ArcGIS Enterprise also supports native cloud functionality such as storage and databases on several cloud platforms. Examples include Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Microsoft Azure SQL Database. See the documentation for each ArcGIS component for information on the native cloud functionality that's supported.

Supported virtualization environments

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