Webgisdr in to replicate a highly available deployment (portal url)

We have two data centers, each with highly available, single-machine deployments:

  • mainmachine01.domain.com:7443/arcgis (active)
  • mainmachine02.domain.com:7443/arcgis (standby)
    and
  • altmachine01.domain.com:7443/arcgis (active)
  • altmachine02.domain.com:7443/arcgis (standby)

 

Currently, the main site is active (bold). You can get to it from https://maps.portal.com/portal. If we flipped to the alternate data center, it would still be the same maps.portal.com/portal

 

We want to replicate the deployment between the two sites. So two questions:

 

  1. When I backup the main site using the webgisdr utility, what should I specify as the Portal URL in the export webgisdr properties file? maps.portal.com/portal? Or the active machine name mainmachine01.domain.com:7443/arcgis
  2. When I restore the site to the alternate data center, what should I specify as the Portal URL import webgisdr properties file?
    maps.portal.com/portal (likely not)? Or the active machine name altmachine01.domain.com:7443/arcgis
