We have 5 ArcGIS Servers and 1 Web Server. based on the system design proposed by the company the ArcSOM will be installed on the WebServer, and the Other 5 server will host only ArcSOC. how to find out each ArcSOC to which ArcSOM belongs. I monitor all process on all machines, and I found that ArcSOM is installed on all machines, but I am not sure during how the post installation configured and if the ArcSOC's belongs to one ArcSOM.

According to me Try to figure out ArcSOC first (Check the keycode file on every soc machine (C:\Program Files\ESRI\License10.0\sysgen folder) and ArcSOM you can install at any machines . I think you have set fail-over configuration..I am researching on this at my side.. – Sunil Mar 14 '13 at 5:28
+1 It depends upon installation type also ( like single box /Distributed installation ) – Sunil Mar 14 '13 at 5:33
It's Distributed installation (should be), and this is what I want to make sure from – Ayman Salah Mar 14 '13 at 5:51
Have you followed the Distributed Install help? It talks about how you install SOM component on One Machine and Soc Component on different machines and link them. – Devdatta Tengshe Mar 14 '13 at 10:29
