Remote Processing Server (Environment setting)

This environment setting is used to specify the server, user name, and password for ArcGIS Server, when you use the Parallel Processing Factor. To use the Remote Processing Server environment setting, the designated server has to have the Raster Processing system service enabled. The Raster Processing service requires the Image Service license.

Usage notes

  • The Raster Processing service is not started by default on ArcGIS Server. The server administrator needs to start the service before the server can be used as a Processing Server.
  • To specify a Processing Server, use the server's name or IP address. If the Processing Server is a server cluster, use the server name, which is the site host.
  • The user authorized to use the Raster Processing server should be either a publisher or administrator of the server.
