  • Hi shrawn0909,

    To create a new managed account, you can go to Central Administration Site-Security-Configure Managed account, and register a new managed account.

    The best way to create these service application is to run the Configuration Wizards, and SharePoint will automatically create and configure the service applications.

    After these service application created, you can go to Application management--Manage Service Application to manage these application.

    If you need to use a seperated account for the service application, for example, user profile service,you can go to Security--Configure Service Account to change the service account.

    Thanks,
    Simon

  • Hi,

    Use new application pools. This way the implementation will be clean and if one application pool is broke because of some reason, other services will not get effected.

  • Its often prudent to have more than 1 but it usually takes some planning on which services you want to group under which app pool, bear in mind that there is a limit on the number of app pools you should create, so you should actor this in when you decide whether to create new ones, and which service apps will reside where.  Read up on the limits here:

  • Hi Simon,

    Just double checking. Is running the configuration wizard (the white wizard) really the best way to create the service applications? I thought although it may be OK for creating a development box, it is not the recommended way to do in  more serious environments like PRODUCTION and STAGING. For example, can you avoid creating the databases with the GUID attached if you are creating service applications with configuration wizard?
