Unusual situation here. We have very high usage from workflows and site browsing on the 2 current WFEs but very little stress on the app server. We have a limitation of 3 servers so our thought was to convert the app server to an additional WFE. It would still run CA, majority of search, and additional services but would also provide a little bit of resources to take some load off of the 2 other WFEs.
I understand the steps needed to add an additional server to a farm but wanted to double check a couple things for just simply converting one.
To have the app pools and sites added to the newly converted server would we just start (Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application) and (Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Workflow Timer Service) or would we have to still run the configuration wizard?
Any other tips or recommendations?
