Good Afternoon:

New to Web-based GIS configurations and need some insight.  If I want to deploy Portal for ArcGIS:

* Does Portal access ArcGIS Server services through the Web Adapter?  or
* Does Portal access ArcGIS Server services directly?

If I have two Web Adapters, how should Portal be deployed and/or configured?  Let assume that one Web Adapter handles Arc Server Services and the other handles other web services, such as SharePoint.

A High-level understanding will suffice, appreciate your insight.
