During the install wizard for Portal for ArcGIS, you name Portal. The default is 'arcgis' and you can name it anything you desire, I typically change it to 'portal. So your URL will look similar to http://<computer.domain>:7443/portal/home . During troubleshooting, I reinstalled portal using the repair option, now the URL is http://<computer.domain>:7443/arcgis/home which is not desired. My question: after repair install is completed...is there a way to change the configuration or portal name from 'arcgis' to 'portal' to return my URL to http://<computer.domain>:7443/portal/home without uninstalling and rerunning the install wizard? 

My next course of research in hunting the admin directory for a solution. So far, I did not find anything via google search or geonet. Thank you.

One way is to install and configure Web Adaptor with Portal for ArcGIS. Then,

 https://<computer.domain>:7443/arcgis/

will become

 https://<computer.domain>/portal/

Researching...found a good explaination of the URLs on ESRI's site:

Components of ArcGIS URLs—Portal for ArcGIS (10.5.x) | ArcGIS Enterprise 

Used the help files on the Web Adaptor configuration GUI (the one you enter the Portal URL and username/password to connect the WA to Portal). Found out you name the WebAdaptorName when running the WA install. So I unregistered the WA, uninstalled the WA via Control Panel, and reran the WA install to fix my error.

Does this make sense?

Was there an easier way?

Testing my own work...new URL not working and old URL is still in place after WA install, rebooting Portal, and clearing cache on browser...reaching out to ESRI support for ideas.

Did you define the WebAdaptorName as "portal" while installing it?

Then you should configure it with https://<serverhost.domain>:7443/arcgis/

Once successfully configured, you will be able to access the Portal HomePage using https://<webadaptorhost.domain>/<webadaptorname>/home

After talking with ESRI, The Admin URL is hard coded and cannot be changed.

https://<server>.<domain>:7443/arcgis/home
