Hi, 

I've got two question concerning the upgrade process:

1. when upgrade a HA ArcGIS Server site will there be a downtime?

2. shall I upgrade the WebAdaptor after upgrade maschine 1 or after the whole site has been upgraded?

Thanks!

Yes your site will be down during the upgrade process, and it's recommended to take the entire site offline during the upgrade so there is no content being updated while 1/2 of the system isn't fully functional.  Otherwise system folders can become corrupted and cause issues when completing the post-upgrade steps.

The web adaptor should be upgraded after the entire site is upgrade since its connection is to the site as whole and not an individual machine.
