Activ-Activ "Portal for ArcGIS" in HA deployment ?

I am wondering if it is possible to have an activ-activ deployment of "Portal for ArcGIS" component in a HA deployment ?


The requirement from the security team is the following: "ArcGIS Enterprise" should be accessible from 2 differents networks and hit different servers.

One network should be able to hit a "Portal for ArcGIS" component opened to the outside world and another network should be able to hit the same "Arcgis Enterprise" (same maps, config, ...) but hosted on different dedicated server thanks to networking configuration.

While I think it could be possible with "ArcGIS Server" component as they can all be "activ" in the deployment, I am under the impression that it is not possible with "Portal for ArcGIS" component as there is one activ and one passiv:

"If you stop the Portal for ArcGIS service or the primary machine becomes unavailable (for example, if the hard drive fails), the portal will failover to the standby" (from documentation).


Did I miss anything ? Any suggestion regarding this requirement ?


Thanks !
