I am running the utility to generate the backup file, cmd reports that Arcgis Server, Data Store and portal have been successfully generated, but at the end of the process the file is automatically deleted ... why does this happen? During the process I check which folders are created and subfolders as well, along with backup files, but at the end of the process everything disappears, can anyone help me

Hi - I recently experienced the same thing... the cause was due to webgisdr failing on one of the ArcGIS Servers in the deployment.  The reason this server was failing was because a non-default location had been defined for the Cache Directory (see ArcGIS Server Manager >> Site >> Directories).  When I changed it back to default (C:\arcgisserver\directories\arcgiscache) the webgisdr tool ran without any failures and the output .webgissite file was generated.

Hope that helps.
