Standby Portal Webgisdr issues

I'm currently testing the webgisdr utility and replicating a primary portal environment to a standby portal environment for disaster recovery. Each environment uses the same URL and references separate virtual IP addresses. My portal setup has a federated ArcGIS Server instance and a separate ArcGIS Server as the host server. I'm coming across two issues in the standby portal instance:


  1. The tool fails on the ArcGIS Data Store saying it is unable to find the data store in the standby environment since the names are different. Does the standby data store environment need to have the same database name?
  2. Besides the data store, everything seems to restore just fine. But, after futher investigation I noticed both the ArcGIS Server instances have had their directories changed to the same location as the primary environment. The site configuration file location for the standby sites are still the same. Is this normal behavior? I'm worried this will cause issues down the road when I'm importing the full site to the standby environment. I don't want to overwrite services that are in primary environment.
