I will be setting up ArcGIS server 10.1 SP 1soon and I have a few questions before I start this. I have looked at the Web Adapter and the ArcGIS install guides but wanted to get some input.

1.Has anyone been installing on Windows Server 2012? I will be installing ArcGIS 10.1 SP1 and the Web Adapter on a separate 2012 servers. Have there been any problems with this that people have ran into? Should I just stick with 2008 R2 or just go with 2012?

2.I see the ArcGIS server needs IE 7 min, and looks like it can go up to 9. Will this software work with IE 10 though?

3.What ports am I going to need open between the Web Adapter server and the ArcGIS server, 6443? Is 6080 just for the server to World if I am doing the web and GIS all on 1 server?

4.If I am using SSL and HTTPS over port 6443, should I be using certs?

Thanks for the links. I don't have the link to the doc I was looking at before but I didn't see IE10 on the list. What are you using port 6446 for? –  Chadddada Mar 4 '13 at 14:49
    
@Chadddada I am sorry..regarding question 3 please read port 6443 instead of 6446. When SSL is enabled, ArcGIS Server uses port 6443 by default. –  Sunil Mar 5 '13 at 5:03
