Before performing maintenance that requires shutting down a Revit Server Host machine, you must first shut down the Revit Server application on that machine. The following procedure will ensure that all potential points of communication between Revit application workstations and the central models hosted on that machine are disabled.
- IMPORTANT: Notify team members that the Revit Server Host will be unavailable, and ask them to save and close any server-based workshared models that are hosted by that machine.
- Open the Revit Server Administrator, select the Revit Server Host to be shut down, and click (lock).
- On the Revit Server Host machine, click StartAdministration ToolsServer Manager.
- In the left pane of the Server Manager, expand the Roles tree node, and select the Internet Services (IIS) Manager node.
