Hi,

I accidently deleted the federated server from our Portal. I'm wondering if there's an easy way to re-federate ArcGIS Server and make the existing hosted layers still work?

We are working with 10.3.1

Thanks!

I thought I should update on my post. I've contacted Esri Support, here is their reply:

there is a disaster recovery tool for Portal coming out at 10.5 which will address the issues which occur when unfederating and refederating

Have you found a work around at this time to take care of the issues?

Sorry for my late reply.

I had to manually re-federate, which means, manually update each hosted feature service in the config store to match them with the old itemids.

It is very painful.
