The Application Discovery and Load Balancer Service Application and its associated proxy on my farm are broken and preventing workflows from publishing correctly. I'd like to just destroy and re-provision them from scratch, but when I try to use
Remove-SPServiceApplication on them, I get the message
This service application proxy is required for the farm to function correctly and cannot be deleted.
Google returned exactly one result on the subject, here. Unfortunately this farm is being actively used and while rebuilding it from scratch isn't out of the option, it would be a huge time investment. Is there some other way to salvage it, or at least remove it by force so I can recreate it?
