I have installed Portal for ArcGIS and ArcGIS Server in single machine environment enterprise version 10.5.1
ArcGIS Server is federated with Portal and set as hosting server in Portal.
I have more than 100 Web maps and apps created and shared with my organization everything is working fine.
Now, I would like to install ArcGIS Datastore for analysis, publish scene layer, tile layer and so.. on..
Do I need to unfederate Server and install ArcGIS Datastore, configure Datastore and federate server again with Portal ?
What are the steps to install and configure Datastore without losing Portal items ? I want everything works normal after install and configure the Datastore ?
Would that possible to Install and configure Datastore where Server is already federated and set as hosting server ?
Any suggestion please ?
There's no need to unfederate Portal and Server when configuring the Data Store. Just install ArcGIS Data Store on whatever machine you want it running on, configure it with your existing federated Server, and then set the federated Server as the hosting Server via the Portal home page.
Thanks for your quick reply.
My ArcGIS Server site already has an enterprise geodatabase registered as its managed database in Data Stores ArcGIS Server Manager.
Would that be an issue while configuring ArcGIS Data Store with exsiting federated Server ?
Yes, starting at 10.6.1 (I think), you can't use your own enterprise geodatabase as the managed database within an ArcGIS Enterprise deployment. You'll need to unregister that data store and register the ArcGIS Data Store.
This is only specific to if the server is the hosting server:
Beginning with ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6.1, your portal's hosting server must use the relational data store provided through ArcGIS Data Store.
Not sure if that clarifies my comment.
