ArcGIS Portal 10.5.1

Windows Server 2012

We have a federated ArcGIS Portal site with two ArcGIS Portal machines.    The Portal site is being accessed by a load balancer.   Looking in PortalAdmin, everything is correct in terms of the WebContextURL and the load balancer involved, in addition to the two machines listed correctly.   See attached screenshot.    I was only looking at these files because of some previous issues we have seen and noticed the following.   In the properties file, the machines and loadbalanced URL show QA.   This is not what is reflected in PortalAdmin.   Attached screenshot.

The portal.machine.name property is set to a machine in a QA environment and not what shows in Portal Admin.   The webcontext.url also shows the QA environment and is also not the same as in the PortalAdmin.    I know this properties file is not to be edited and work instead done through the admin tool.    However, based on that statement, why are the values below different and do I care as long as it is working (appears to be)?   Is this file only used for additional configuration and when does an update happen to the file?

#
# At 10.2.1 you must use the Adminstrative API for Portal to add or update configuration properties.
# This file is used internally by the Portal.
# PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE THIS FILE DIRECTLY. USE THE PORTAL ADMIN DIRECTORY INSTEAD.

# the 'nodeagent' section is used to configure the Portal daemon/service
nodeagent.jmx.port=7099

# the 'dir' section is used to configure the directories required for Portal
dir.data=C:/arcgisportal/
portal.machine.name = PortalMachineQA.URL.COM
dir.logs = C:\\arcgisportal\\logs\\
content.store = {\"type\":\"fileStore\",\"provider\":\"FileSystem\",\"connectionString\":\"gNXsdoOC5SzjBJw118scZtqWf2mpUPQdDGPqE-4_o0mgzPMfiHtgWgNZwWNibkHcabzx77V3qBdh49Y129whKCNZ_UIphaaRHu-43B6SAH8.\",\"isConnectionStringEncrypted\":true}

Hi @BillHarvey1 , Did you find where the settings made in PortalAdmin reflect in the file structure of PortalArcGIS?

I need to change a wrong configuration in PortalAdmin
but I lost access to the domain.com:7443/arcgis/portaladmin interface...
