SharePoint 2016 Enterprise. We have a dedicated crawl farm continuously crawling our content farm. Where do I need to provision the User Profile Service? On the crawl farm or the content farm?


We have same kind of topology, where

  • User Profile Sync & Mysite & content in single farm. (for all social features, Manage Metadata related stuff...this will help)
  • Search is in Own Farm
  • Build the trust between Content & Search farm.
  • So just configuring the crawl farm to search the sps3s of the webapp tied to the UPS on the content farm will work? – Semada Dec 12 '18 at 15:58
  • that's correct. something like this sps3s://mysite.com, it is your mysite webapplication – Waqas Sarwar MVP Dec 12 '18 at 16:24
