I am going through the installation of ArcGIS Server 10.1, the Web Adaptor for IIS and Spatial Data Server.  I noticed that both the Web Adaptor and SDS have very similar installation procedures.  Where it asks you to enter the Virtual Directory Name, do these both have to be the same name?

The default for both is "arcgis", but what are the consequences of using different names for each?   Or must they both have the same name?
