SharePoint Application Proxy Group

Proxy group

is the relationship between web application and the service application connection (Proxy) or connection for a service application

It enables the web application to associate with just the application services needed

EX: my site web application doesn’t need to be associated with all service applications

By default, there is only one Application Proxy Group

Go to central admin

Then

Application Management

Manage web application

Then service connection  

 

 

To create new application Proxy Group

New-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroup -Name “new name of your proxy group”

In my case I will create one for the Project server only

New-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroup –Name MSproj_Group

Before command



After command


Now assign service application connection (Proxy) to the Proxy group

Use the following command to get list of Proxies

You need the ID of the required servie

Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | FT -AutoSize -Property ID, DIs*


Add-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroupMember <Proxygroupname> -Member <ID>

Alternatively, you can run the following command to get list of all services with project name

Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | where { $_.Name -like “*projec*” }



 


Now its connected

 

 

I will assing another proxy the Usage and health data collection Proxy

 


Now it is connected

OneDrive for Business retention and deletion

Their OneDrive for Business will be preserved for 30 days. You’re the temporary owner of all documents saved to their OneDrive for Business.

Reason

When a OneDrive for Business site collection is scheduled for deletion, the default action is to transfer ownership of the site to the manager of the original work account or school account that is being deleted. For this to occur, the user profile Manager Property must be set for the original owner of the OneDrive for Business site. For more go to OneDrive retention

For this to occur, the user profile Manager Property and Access Delegation need to be set for the deleted user before deleting it. To do that, as a global admin or SharePoint admin, please follow the steps below: 
1. Go to the SharePoint admin center
2. Click User profiles > People > Manage User Profiles > Find the user account to deleted > Edit my profile > Manager > type the manager account into the box > Save and Close

Go to central admin

Then Edit my profile

Project server installation

Project Server 2016 runs as a service application under SharePoint Server 2016. It is included as part of the SharePoint Server 2016 Enterprise installation, though it is licensed separately

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee662109(v=office.16).aspx

Project Server 2016 requires a license in order to operate, and you must enable Project Server 2016 by using your license key before you can create a Project Web App site.

(If you are not sure if Project Server 2016 has already been enabled, use the Get-ProjectServerLicense cmdlet to check.)

To activate Project Server 2016

First make sure that it’s not enabled

Open the SharePoint admin shell

Make sure to run as admin

SharePoint 2016 installation

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2016

SharePoint 2016
Server 2016
SQL 2016

Summary: Deployment articles for SharePoint Server 2016 on server 2016 and SQL server 2016 help you to install SharePoint 2016 prerequisites features and applications and configure SharePoint Server 2016

Mount the ISO file

Note: make sure to copy the mounted file and add them to another local location, cause will add some files

Make sure you are using administrator account on the server for installing

In my Example, I copied them to the D:

Note: Do not try to install any prerequisites by just double clicking and install it manually

First

Do the following before running the prerequisites to avoid any expected errors

https://profadmins.com/2013/12/24/sharepoint-2013-prerequisites-fails-with-msi-installer-error-code-1603-while-installing-appfabric-1-1/

 PSModulePath in the Environment Variables

You may have the following error

Appfabric installation failed because installer MSI returned with error code:1603

This is a generic MSI error message and does not give any indication about how to get the issue fixed. Uninstall or reinstalling only makes it worse.

The issue can be caused due to the following:

  1. The path to the PowerShell executable that is needed for the AppFabric installation is incorrect.
  2. In some scenarios, repeated uninstallation and re-installation does not fix the issue. This is because the installer does not remove the PSModulePath entry in Environment Variables during un-installation and the installation fails because the entry already exists.
  3. If you are trying to install all the prerequisites manually as the server does not have a connection to internet. 
    Note: Appfabric installation and configuration has to be done by the prerequisite installer ONLY and not in a stand-alone manner.

    You can implement any one of the two solutions listed below

  • Solution 1 
    Append the following path to PSModulePath entry in the environment variables –%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0 

  • Go to My Computer, right-click Properties
  • On the System’ page, click Advanced System Settings on the left-side pane.
  • If you receive a UAC prompt, click on Yes to launch the System Properties dialog box
  • From the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables
  • Within the System Variables section in the lower half, select PSModulePath and click on Edit(or double-click PSModulePath‘)
  • Append the following path to PSModulePath entry in the environment variables

%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\

Ensure that the PSModulePath entry looks like this:
C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules\;c:\Program Files\AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server\PowershellModules 

Second

ServerManagerCMD

Make sure to create another Servermanager copy and rename it ServerManagerCMD

Sometimes it looks for this file name not the Default one

Third

Install and copy prerequisites manually

Install the prerequisites manually from the following link I found it’s the best link

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/meamcs/2012/12/26/install-and-download-sharepoint-2013-prerequisites-offline-manually/

Then copy them all in the

.\Source\prerequisiteinstallerfiles

Just install the prerequisites file locally in the prerequisite folder

Run the prerequisiteinstaller

Trouble shooting

If you start the tool then you faced a problem like EX:

Sync framework run time error during the installation

You can make sure it is in the prerequisites folder

Then Run the following command

.\prerequisiteinstaller.exe /SYNC:D:\Source\prerequisiteinstallerfiles\Synchronization.msi

The following is the List of commands

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485%28v=office.16%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

Another Example for the App Fabric error

https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/meamcs/2012/12/26/install-and-download-sharepoint-2013-prerequisites-offline-manually/

Windows Server App Fabric error

Now you have to download it manually

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=235496

(Note: don’t install WindowsServerAppFabricSetup_x64_6.1 this is not the correct version that

SharePoint installer seeks)

 Download it but do not install
it by yourself since it needs configuration, hence install all other

Prerequisites in this article (except this one) then let the prerequisite installer to install App Fabric

In addition, configure it manually for you by running the following command from command prompt:

prerequisiteInstaller.exe /appfabric:[Full AppFabric Installer path]


D: is the CD drive where SharePoint installer is placed

Solution 2

You can just download it and place it in the prerequisites file then it will go on and install it
