ArcGIS Enterprise represents the evolution of Esri's GIS server technology into a complete GIS platform in your own infrastructure, supporting enterprises of any size. ArcGIS Enterprise provides a full Web GIS experience integrated with ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Desktop. See the following prerequisites to get started:
- ArcGIS Enterprise includes many components. See What's included for a list of components.
- Review the system requirements for each component.
- Administrative privileges are required for installation.
- On Windows, Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is required for installing the ArcGIS Server .NET Extension Support feature. ArcGIS Web Adaptor for IIS also requires Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5. This version of Microsoft .NET Framework can be downloaded from Microsoft.
- Download and install the component. If upgrading, review Upgrading to ArcGIS 10.6. For help, see the corresponding installation guide.
- Obtain your software authorization numbers and authorize the software. If your Portal for ArcGIS organization will use a premium app, such as ArcGIS Pro or Drone2Map for ArcGIS, you will also need ArcGIS License Manager 10.6 to configure your premium app licenses to specify which members can use the software. See the Portal for ArcGIS Administrator Guide and the License Manager Reference Guide for more information.
Visit ArcGIS Enterprise for access to additional resources such as documentation and support.

Upgrading to ArcGIS 10.6
- The ArcGIS 10.6 setup package is designed to detect and upgrade an existing installation of the same ArcGIS product. The settings for the installation location are retained in the upgrade. However, you will need to obtain a 10.6 software authorization number and reauthorize for use in 10.6. See the installation guide for more information on installation upgrades and new installations.
- Existing ArcGIS 10.5 - 10.5.1 authorization numbers will not work with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6. You must obtain a 10.6 authorization number.
Obtaining software authorization numbers
If needed, your account's primary maintenance contact can obtain authorization numbers from My Esri. After signing in with your Esri Account, click My Organizations > Licensing > View Authorizations. Click a product name to obtain its authorization number.
The license version on ArcGIS Enterprise authorizations eligible for use with ArcGIS 10.6 will display as 10.6 under View Authorizations. Customers in the United States need to contact Esri Telesales to order additional Named User License of Portal for ArcGIS. For those outside the United States, contact your local distributor for information about your authorization numbers.
