I have a system set up with 10 servers. I have 4 sites, with 2 machines in each site. I have an internal web server and an external web server with IIS containing web adaptors. The first 3 sites installations went without a problem. I installed ArcGIS Server on all the machines, clustered the 2 machines per site, created the web adaptors, connected them to an internal web server. When I got to the last site, I loaded ArcGIS server, just like before, and I got the error the config-store connection failed, and that the specific location in not accessible. Ensure that ArcGIS Server account has read and write access to the location.
I have my config-store and directories on a file share. My admin account that I used to load AGS has full permissions to those folders. I know this because the folders for each site are located in the same directory.
I had this issue with the first server in the site, and I had my server guy rebuild the server from a saved backup. I did a clean install on a clean server and it worked. So I thought I had the problem solved, but when I went to add a second machine to that site, I get the same error. Had the server guy do the same thing, restore the server from a saved image. Nothing. We tried this 3 times. The issue I can't explain is the exact same process has been done on 7 machines, and on the 8th (and last), it sending this error.
I have also tried creating the config store locally on the server machine, and then trying to edit the location, and that does not work, same error. I can connect to the unc path through windows explorer, so I know the server can see the file server.
Any help would be appreciated. Very frustrating. I have attached a screen shot of the system error, and a diagram of our architecture.
