I need to use specific features available when deploying UPA. Hence I need to create a "my sites" site collection because I need to use the "Site feed" feature.

I need to know if deploying the my sites collection on the same web application but not using it will have any impact on the farm ?

I would also like to know what for the Reporting Site feature is used ? What does it imply ?

You should not deploy MySites to the same Web Application due to the requirement of having self-service site creation enabled.

The Reporting feature is used for Usage Reporting of a particular Site Collection.

  • Self-service site creation will not be enabled.

  • SSSC is a check made when setting up MySites. It will fail to set up if you don't enable it.
