I am working on a SharePoint 2016 OnPremise 3 server farm:

  • WebFrontEnd
  • Application with cache
  • Sql

I needed to cahnge the application server, so I added it to the farm and migrated the CA as written in this post and updated the AAM. Since it did not work I tried to unprovision and provision it without the wizard, using psconfig as mentioned here. I also checked the registry, did not help.
When on the server I click on Start -> SharePoint 2016 Central Administration, it opens the new one and it works.
What am I missing?

You said that When on the server I click on Start -> SharePoint 2016 Central Administration, it opens the new one and it works.

What is the correct URL? And what is the wrong URL?

  • I already had seen these posts. However, when I say it works, it opens the url of the new server (http:/server02:8005). The wrong one is pointing to the old one (http:/server01:8005).

  • It required a restart of both servers. Now everything is fine.
