the machine in question has winserver 2016 and IIS 10.
ArcGIS Enterprise pre-installed and not configured ("esri" image in the MS Azure market).
Now I'm in the process of installing and configuring the WebAdaptor.
In previous installations I checked that the URL I was using to access the webadaptor was the external DNS so that I could access arcgis server and portal from outside through port 80.
Inthis installation, I have problems in doing so for Portal in the sense that when I click on "Cofigure" in "https://<my_external_DNS>/arcgis/webadaptor/portal", it says that configuration succeeded, but the link provided does not work (a blank page shows up).
I typed in as the portal URL "https://<my_external_DNS>:7443" for portal.
For ArcGIS Server it does not even configure. I receive an error saying "Additional non-parsable characters are at the end of the string".
To be precise: https://beagis.westus2.cloudapp.azure.com:7443 redirects to https://bea-arcgis-srv.1radqad4t4hulcabelsigtpwqb.xx.internal.cloudapp.net:7443/arcgis/home/ . I think this is the problem and this is how the installation provided with the image was dsigned.
If I use the internal_DNS I can succesfully configure the WebAdaptor, but I had other problems, like not being able to login to arcgis/rest/services (after pressing login I was receiving a Timeout Exceed error).
The only source I could find to be of help was this other thread, specifically one comment saying "I had a similar problem on my Windows network system. Seems it was because I had initially setup things using our internal network names (before installing our SSL certs). I needed to unregistered portal from the Web Adapter and then go through the setup using the public domain name the cert was applied to.".
I need this to work as it should have been easier than installing everything from scratch, but it is getting even way harder...
Aprreciate any help.
Still struggling to get it working. I uninstalled the webadaptor to hopefully connect from ArcMap at least, but when I do it I receive an error saying "Error: Unable to acquire authentication token."
Also, i noticed that when I try to access the URL "https://beagis.westus2.cloudapp.azure.com:6443/arcgis/rest/services" from outside, ArcGIS Server REST opens up, but when I try to login, it keeps redirecting me to the internal https://bea-arcgis-srv.1radqad4t4hulcabelsigtpwqb.xx.internal.cloudapp.net
which is never resolved obviously, because it's only seen from within the same virtual and nowhere else.
I just changed the title because it seems the real problem comes when federating the ArcGIS Server with Portal.
WebAdaptor is now working just fine. I can connect to my ArcGIS Server machine from within ArcMap using the external URL and credentials with no problem.
As long as I federate the server with the Portal, I cannot connect anymore. Morevore, if I try to login to ArcGIS Server (e.g.) REST, I am redirected when doing it from the visrtual machine, and I receive a Timeout Exceed error from another machine, with the URL being very strange (something like "https://servername/arcgis/login?ReturnUrl=https://servername/arcgis/rest/services). I also tried the solutions provided in this thread, but noe of them solved the problem.
I am using a Self signed certification, could this be the real problem?
Did you find a solution to this? I am experience similar issue but with 10.7.1. Before federation, access to GIS Server via ArcMap or web browser was perfect. After Federation, i receive a timeout errror in ArcMap when trying to connect ( Add a GIS Server in Catalog) and also "timeout exceeded" error in web browser when trying to access Manager. All from within the one virtual machine
