Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application installed on Application Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a client who installed SharePoint 2010 on their application server. So know they have the web app  for the site on there.

    What I want to do is move the site to the web front-end that is in the farm. Currnetly there is nothig on the Web Front end since they did not install this correctly.

    Here are the farm servers

    Web Front end

    Application Server

    Database Server

     

    Do I just stop "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application" on the App server and start it on the Web Front-end?

  • Start Foundation Web Application on the WFE and stop it on the App Server.  It really is that simple.

  • SharePoint has a farm always deploy all web applications to all servers in the farm (except for Central Admin which is only hosted on the Application Server). Then using the DNS Server, you only need to point the DNS to the Web Front-End instead of the Application Server.

    The site must still be up on the Application Server in order to the Search Crawled Service to index the site (assuming the Index Service in running on the Application Server).

  • This does not answer my question. The "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application" is running on the application server and not the Web Front-end.

    The actual site needs to run on the WFE. How do I get it to the WFE in the farm?

     They installed SharePoint on just the App server. It is currently hosting the CA and the actual website.
