  • Hi,

    What do you mean exactly? Do you want to split some parts of the Central Administration?

  • Hi xristianmatos,

     

    the Central Administration is by itself a web application, as are any other, user-created web applications. Hence, there is no such way of "splitting" up an existing web application into Central Administration and another web application. In fact, you create SharePoint web applications *using* Central Administration (but you can also use PowerShell). If you have an existing web application, it is either an IIS web application or one generated by user using Central Administration.

     

    I hope this helped to clarify a bit the sight on SP2010 web applications.

    Best regards,

    Martin

  • When you setup your CA (Central Admin) configuration you should have supplied a port number (preferrably something other than 80).  Or, you will be naming your user webapplications something other than the name you are using for your CA web application.  You changed your description from your earlier post so I removed this.  So my initial response that I deleted would still apply.  What do you see when you do the following:

    • Browse to your CA
    • Select Application Management
    • Select Manage Web Applications

    It should have something like this: 

    Name

    Url

    Port

    SharePoint - WebApplication1

    http://WebApplication1URL/

    80

    SharePoint - WebApplicationX

    http://WebApplicationXURL/

    80

    SharePoint Central Administration v4

    http://CAURL:71171/

    71171

    71171 is just an example of the port that was specified for the CA during installation
