public interface IServerMachine
extends Serializable

Provides access to properties of a server host machine for administrators.

Superseded By

IServerMachine2

Remarks

ArcGIS Server is a distributed system. Server objects managed by the GIS server can run on one or more host machines. A machine that can host server objects must have the Server Object Container installed on it, and the machine must be added to the list of host machines managed by the Server Object Manager.

The IServerMachine interface allows you to configure the properties of a machine to add it to the GIS Server. You must set the Name property for the machine which will be the name of the machine on the network. The Description property is optional.

Use the AddMachine method of the IServerObjectAdmin interface to add the new host machines to your GIS Server. All server objects configured in the GIS server can run on any of the host machines, so all host machines must have access to the necessary data and output directories used by all the server objects.
