Is it feasible to share service applications between SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint 2010 Farms?

    Question

  • Hi,

    i would like to know if its feasible to share the service applications between sharepoint 2016 and 2010 farms?

    Note: I will be migrating from sharepoint 2010 to 2013 and then to 2016, however i would like to know if its technically possible to publish any service application from sharepoint 2016 farm and consume the same in sharepoint 2013.

    I am aware and have implemented this between N and N-1 versions of sharepoint, however is it feasible to do this between N and N-2 versions of sharepoint. i.e. between SP 2016 and SP 2010

    Thank you!!

  • No, it's not supported to share between 2010 and 2016.

  • Hello Trevor,

    Thanks for your response.

    I hope this is possible between SP 2013 [as consumer] and SP 2016 [as publisher], the way its possible between 10 and 13.

    Can you please confirm if only sharing of service application is possible between N and N-1 version??

    Thanks in advance!!

  • Yes, it is only possible to share between N and N-1. In N-1 scenarios, the latest version of SharePoint must be the publisher.
