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 CreateMachine method to create a new server machine that you can pass as an argument to the AddMachine method to add new host machines to your GIS server.
