I am installing Portal internal to a domain. Because it is all internal there is no need for SSL.
I am finding it almost (if not completely) impossible to configure Portal without SSL. Within Portal itself on the security page I have unchecked the 'Allow access to the portal through HTTPS only.'
The issue seems to really be with WebAdapter. When I go to register the Portal with Web Adapter I give it the address:
http://mymachine:7080 (instead of 7443). This works for doing the registration, however, when it registers the Portal it still gives it the Url: https://mymachine/arcgis/home. What I want is the Url to be: http://mymachine/arcgis/home.
So no matter what I do it will send me to the SSL port when I try to connect. Which then give a certificate warning
When I install WebAdapter I tell it to use Port 80.
Using version 10.4 of Server, Portal, WebAdapter
Is it possible to get this working with everything on Port 80. I find it really annoying the esri wants me to add a level of security which is not needed and requires I either install a Windows domain Cert Authority (a complete pain), get a public certificate (expensive and requires I use public names inside my domain), or live with cert warnings (which means users call the help desk constantly).
