Running a federated 1071 deployment. When users upload data to the portal, say a file geodatabase, it creates a 'hosted' service. The GIS Server is set as the hosting server in Portal, so it creates a 'Hosted' folder in Server Manager with that service.

Trying to understand a couple things:

a. If someone uploads a file geodatabase to the portal, is the data stored on the Data Store machine, and then a service is created on the GIS Server? 

b. Can we/Should we designate the Data Store as the hosting server? 

c. How can I create a list of all services under the 'Hosted' folder in Server Manager so we can do some cleanup?

Thanks

Hi @TigerWoulds 

So if you upload a GDB SHP CSV Doc etc. it gets stored in the ArcGIS Portal Content folder, then if you publish that GDB SHP it creates a hosted feature service the hosted feature service gets stored in the ArcGIS Datastore which is just a SQL server under the hood and a reference to that service gets written in ArcGIS Server Hosted .

NB! please don't delete any hosted services out of ArcGIS Server Manager as this will delete the data out of datastore and create orphaned services on portal, if you want to remove the service delete it out of ArcGIS portal.

I have attached a script that can audit your portal just create a folder called Reports in the folder that you want to run the script and on line 265 - 267 add your portal login details.
