I very recently had the same issue with Nintex Workflow 2010: It wouldn't install properly from my App server because this service was turned off. Other than that, yes it's a good way to turn an application server into a true application server, and prevent it from running and serving the content web applications and IIS sites. Have a look at the ...

It is under System settings => Manage services on server. Also, you can stop and start services using PowerShell. Check out this article for comprehensive how-to on both methods: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee748612.aspx

I think it is a known side effect when installing June CU. You can either uninstall .Net 4.0 or force FIM to use .Net Framework v2.0 It is explained here in detail: http://blogs.technet.com/b/patrick_heyde/archive/2011/07/02/sharepoint-2010-junecu-2011-available-side-effect-info-amp-solution.aspx

Leave it on, as it provides flexibility. You should already be directing traffic to your WFEs with DNS or a load balancer, so other servers won't have traffic hitting them. But leave it on. Down the road you'll need to perform some sort of troubleshooting, and this will come in handy. "Well, then turn it on when you need to!" I hear you say. The problem ...

Paolo Pialorsi has described it well in his book Microsoft® SharePoint® 2010 Developer Reference : Service This is the actual service, with its own engine, data storage, and infrastructure. It can be hosted on a specific server of the farm, or it can be a third-pary service. For example, this could be an external ERP, or it can be a software component ...

You need to expose your service application using a WCF or ASMX "Service Application Endpoint", regardless of how you implement the "Service Instance" (in your case a Windows service). Service applications are covered in detail over at Spencer Harbar's blog. Andrew Connell has also put together some decent guidance on custom service applications.

When you add a new server to your farm you have to run either PSConfig or Powershell to provision SharePoint services. In Powershell you run Install-SPService You still need to define which services will actually run on the server. Essentially, your custom service would follow the same process, install on new server, than start the service.

•Query server. A query server hosts query components and index partitions Query components return search results. Each query component is part of an index partition, which is associated with a specific property database that contains metadata associated with a specific set of crawled content. You can make an index partition redundant by ...

Query Server == Application Server. A "query server" is an application server with only the search service (in this case the query role) role enabled. You could also have a "Access Server" if you would only enable the Access Services role on the server because you have large loads of Access documents being processed. The query server and the search index ...

I realize this is an old question, but it's still relevant. I recently posted a tutorial series here on building service applications: http://www.mattjcowan.com/funcoding/tag/mycorp/

The generally held view is that Service Applications can happily co-exist in a single Application Pool for a small server farm like you have suggested. As you scale out your farm you should carefully consider the app pool architecture. If you try to put all your service applications into seperate application pools as well as all your web applications and ...

Building a custom service application is a very complex development task. Unless you have a very good reason to build a service app, my recommended best practice is: don't. You might consider a custom service application if you have a service that really has to be shared between multiple web applications, or multiple farms. In my experience, this ...

Two search service applications make sense when you need to make sure, that "a query from site A to return results from site B, even if a poorly created scope included both content sources". You will then use search service application proxies to assign each web application their own search service application. This will give you a good level of security- ...

Something may not be configured correctly, possibly the permissions. I recommend some reading on the User Profile Service. It is a very valuable service but a little tricky to set up. So tricky, in fact, that Spencer Harbar has written an entire guide to setting up the User Profile Service correctly. I also recommend the Stuck on Starting FAQ by the same ...

It is not mapping $SharePoint.Project.AssemblyFullName$ to the actual AssemblyFullName value so it is including that as a literal string. Put in the actual value for the assembly and it will work. Alternatively you can check this article out about Replaceable Parameters and how to get your project tokens to render for files outside of the Package and ...

Adding the TokenReplacementFileExtensions ellement shown in the previous post to my .csprog file worked for me as I had a similar issue with my SharePoint 2010 service application recieving the "There are no addresses available for this application". Thank you!

The SharePoint Directory Management service connects SharePoint sites to your organization's user directory to provide enhanced e-mail features. The benefit of using this service is that it enables users to create and manage e-mail distribution groups from SharePoint sites. This service also creates contacts in your organization's user directory so people ...

Yes there will be an outage. The CU package, just like every other, needs to be installed on all web frontends. You will need to bring your farm offline whilst you do this. I would do it over a weekend to give you time to troubleshoot any issues that may come up. However, always always ALWAYS test the CU on a copy of your live environment, to anticipate ...

A couple of things, it was a long post with a lot of different questions/issues.

Moving the database files in the cluster is purely a SQL Server issue. SharePoint has no knowledge and don't care where the database files are stored. It only knows and cares about being able to connect to a SQL server using the name/alias it knows and find the databases with the names it knows. Where the two SQL servers stores the files is something only ...

How about using the workflows to set flags in a list somewhere and then creating a Timer Job that runs on an app server and fires every 5 minutes or so. It would check the list and then process the OCR for the items and then update the source items. If needed, it could push the workflow to the next step as well. That gets the load off of your Web Front ...

For each service application, there is an underlying service application database where the real content lives. The process for each involves moving the database to the other farm SQL instance. To do that follow these steps: Stop the Service Application Detach the database from the current SQL Server Move the Database files to the destination farm server ...

The link between your field and the termstore is probably not correctly set. In order to display the correct values, a termstore field (TaxonomyField) contains the id's of your termstore and termset you want to display. However this ID is different on every server. You need to make sure when using a TaxonomyField the field is configured with the correct ...

It depends how psconfig adds the server to the farm, it may call code to add each service to the new SPServer instance. Your problem is there is no "hook" into the "add server" event in which you can call your code to register SPServiceInstance. I'm surprised that the new SPServiceInstance isn't automatically added to the new SPServer instance when it's ...

One option is to create a term store and make it not available for tagging (I've done this with curse words or slang), so that it could not be used. Also, if you control the managed metadata that can be entered in metadata fields, then you could exclude this term store there as well. Another thing you may want to do is make these words "noise words" so that ...
