The minrole feature is supposedly supported, but is not reflecting such.

  • Which specific Service Instance is it calling out as non-compliant? – Trevor Seward Apr 4 '17 at 15:17
  • Hi Trevor. It doesn't specifically state. The role is Application with Search, and is noted as not compliant. I tried listing the services here, but there doesn't seem to be a clean way. – raredesign Apr 4 '17 at 16:06

  • The configuration of one or more servers in this farm doesn't match what is expected for its server role. You should correct the server configuration to avoid potential functionality or performance issues. Failing Servers: PRODSPAPP – raredesign Apr 4 '17 at 16:10
  • Could you please add screenshots of your problem? Could you please also add a screenshot of your Search-Topology? As SharePoint complains about search, i think the error is there. Search is unfortunately an application which must be configured manually via PowerShell – MHeld Apr 5 '17 at 12:20

[SOLVED] - Thanks to Trevor Seward

I had intentionally installed the Foundation Web Application on the WFE and not the APP, thinking it was correct since the APP should not serve pages, but apparently there are situations and reasons that it is needed on the APP server.

I followed https://sharepointumar.wordpress.com/2013/10/11/restart-microsoft-sharepoint-foundation-web-application-service-stuck-at-stopping/comment-page-1/#comment-146 to provision the service and then the missing web applications.

The Provision() method can be invoked to only provision on the server that invoked it, instead of needing to use ProvisionGlobally().
