ArcGIS Server is a distributed system. Server objects managed by the GIS server 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 (SOM).

Use the AddMachine method to add new host machines to your GIS server. Once a machine has been added to the GIS server, as new server object instances are created, the SOM will make use of the new machine.
