Can I assume that adding or removing the “Central Administration” role is as simple as stopping or starting the “Central Administration” service or there is more into it?
24 Mart 2012 Cumartesi 14:57What specifically are you trying to do? You need Central Administration in your farm. Are you trying to move Central Administration to run on another machine in your farm?

After reading your other thread on WFE vs. Application server, I'll offer these comments.
In the event you have a WFE and an Application server, Central Admin makes sense to run on the WFE. Install SharePoint on your WFE server (be sure to do a Complete Farm installation and not a Standalone installation). Central Administration is created at the time when you create a new server farm. You can see some screenshots of this process at this post http://www.sharepointassist.com/2010/02/11/sharepoint-2010-installation-part-3-install-sharepoint/. After your farm is setup on your WFE, you can install SharePoint on your Application Server then run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard again on the App Server. This time, you'll elect to "connect to an existing server farm" when walking through the wizard.
If you have any further questions or concerns, please let us know.

I expect this should be a straight forward scenario. Let’s say there are 3 WFE and 5 App Servers in a farm. It is preferred that Central Admin application does not run in all servers in a farm. Very simple request. The security team prefer central admin doesn’t run on WFEs.
My question is: What is the best way of doing this? My guess is to stop “Central Administration” service on a server. Is there any more standard way?

Question, do you have CA running on multiple machines right now? By default, it will be installed on the server to initially provision the farm.
You'll want to use the SharePoint Configuration Wizard or PSConfig to remove Central Admin from a machine. Take a look at this forums post: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepointgeneral/thread/8bf35ff2-51e5-40f9-9250-79b37d1dc0a7
If you need to move Central Administration, take a look at http://kirkbarrett.wordpress.com/2010/06/22/how-to-change-central-admin-host-in-sharepoint-2010/ for a walk through.
