I imagine this will be an easy one. Im very familiar with ArcGIS Server .NET edition

However have little experience with the Java edition. So I installed a fresh copy of v10 Enterprise on a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, for self-development purposes.

Ran the post install by the book, and can hit the normal manager console fine. Tried hitting the REST endpoint and got a 404 which I understand is usually expected by default after a fresh install.
I dont have anything funny going on, no proxy, no separate apache using same ports.

Following the advice in this article, I get a 403 when I try and hit:

http://machine name:8399/manager/html

Anyone know why this happens, and how to rectify?

Did you accidentally leave out the name of your computer in the question? It should be: mycomputername:8399/manager/html which should bring up a login page – Herb Oct 7 '10 at 13:11
It stripped it out, because I had it in tags, edited it. So yes, I was including the host name. Thanks for spotting that. – Simon Oct 8 '10 at 0:39
Did a system restore, and then a complete fresh install and still have exact same issue. win7x64:8399/manager/html = 403 win7x64:8399/arcgis/rest = 404 – Simon Oct 15 '10 at 13:13
I suspect it could be something to do with the files in this folder C:\Program Files (x86)\ArcGIS\Server10.0\java\manager\service\managerappserver\conf However, both server.xml and tomcat-users.xml look correct to me. – Simon Oct 16 '10 at 1:20

Does http://win7x64:8399/arcgis/manager/html work? The service name is normally required.

The URL "hostname/manager/html/"; is the URL to Tomcat Manager, which isn't part of the ArcGIS webapps. – mwalker Oct 15 '10 at 17:08

Did you have the windows firewall disabled?

Disable the firewall and restart the arcgis services (ArcGIS Server Manager Service, ArcServerObjectManager)

Try again the url.
