We upgraded from 10.4.1 to 10.5.1
Server first. Then installed the 10.5.1 web adapter.
I could not connect to the portal web site, and so I've beentrying to figure that out. I decided based on reading a bunch of pieced together articles that I should maybe unregister the web adapter and re register it. It WILL NOT work. I've tried everything I can think of.
Failed to get administrator token from Portal. Please verify that the Portal URL specified can be accessed successfully.
I can access the portal by https://machinename:7443/arcgis/home
My portals name is not "arcgis" So already this is confusing to me. I have no idea also where these things are hosted from as there are no directories in my default web site, yet if I stop the site in iis I can no longer access it. I guess its just arcgis magic.
I pointed to this default web site when I installed the web adapter and gave it a portal name of xxxxhome. xxxxhome now exists as a sub application in my default website. When I am registering the web adapter I have been trying all sorts of combinations. The help tooltip only says to enter the URL of my portal and that it MUST be done using FQDN. Thats fine because I have one configured I can use which is accessible both from the outside and local. I have also tried making a generic FQDN in my hosts file as another option. That also doesnt work. The hint shows its using https... :7443. It doesn't indicate why its using 7443 of IF I need to do it the same way. But trying that it doesnt work either. We had this set up and working before we upgraded. When I set it up the first time I was able to use the made up "local" name from my hosts file just fine. Now it doesnt work. I can only assume this is all because of upgrading. Very frustrating. It took me way too much time in the fiest place just to get this thing running. Holy ****. Every single task I would do was error after error, google after google stumbling my way through. It should not be so difficult. I know I'm being a little negative and I appologize. I'm just not sure what else to try short of uninstalling and reinstalling everything. If I do that, how can I ensure I wont lose all my portal content? Can anyone give me any more ideas?
