ArcGIS Data Store setup

Hey folks, we are trying to implement a 3 tiered Enterprise system

  1. ArcGIS Server on one machine (with WebAdapter)
  2. ArcGIS Portal on a second machine (with WebAdapter)
  3. ArcGIS Data Store on a third machine

With some minor difficulties we were able to get ArcGIS Server and Portal talking with each other.  Also, we successfully published map services to Portal.  However, we are unable to get the Data Store configured correctly.  Installation and setup went just fine, but we are unsure of how to tell Portal/Server to utilize the Data Store.

Also, we federated our ArcGIS Server prior to adding the Data Store via Server Manager.  Could this be the problem?  I'm not even sure we have to specify a Data Store in ArcGIS Server because the options for a "managed database" expect a .sde file.


Any thoughts/help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


BTW - this is being done internally and we are using 10.5.1
