Wondering if any other folks are have discovered issues with AGS after upgrading from 10.5.1 to 10.6.1.  Experiencing some strange issues and troubleshooting has been a bear even with esri assistance.  We are in a HA environment with Windows 2012 VM server.

1. Ghost data - data fails to load - either through publishing or just loading a PDF/JPG.  Attempt to load again, the system says 'file' already exists.  Look low and high, but it doesn't show anywhere.  Have to rename file or republish under another name.


2. Categories - can't seem to implement categories - never an error, but never loads to create.


3. Map Services (continuation of item 1 really) - map services show up in AGS/Portal, but seem to be invalid.  Attempt to republish thru Arcmap/Pro - choose to overwrite, but then service doesn't appear.  Publish as new but fails first time.  Attempt a second time and it NOW recognizes map service does exist so accordingly have to publish with overwrite instead of new - Shazam - it now publishes and all is well in esri world again!  


Just strange errors that have been difficult to troubleshoot before moving onto the next servers to upgrade.  Wondering if anyone else experience this October gremlins as well. fun with portal
