I am in the central admin of SP2013 onpremise. I logged in as a farm account. I can create webapplications, sitecollections etc. But now I try to create a new service application, but the button is greyed out. What can I do to make it work?


possible solution can be found here:

Why is the Create a new service application button disabled and the link not active in Central Admin?

is the UAC enable? So you have to open the Central Administration from start windows menu instead of opening a browser and type the url of the Central Administration... ...or disable UAC.


Open the Central Administration with Run As Administration option and see.
