Removing MySites

Oct 28, 2011 at 12:16 PM

If i delete the creation of the mysites web application could that mess something up further into the script?

I will not be configuring mysites for our users so i woul like to just skip the setup all together but i dont want the script to try and setup the crawl or profile service to look for the mysites.

I have learned that removing my sites from the install causes the profile sync service to not get installed.

You can just comment out the XML for the My Sites. Use a <!-- and --> like you would comment HTML.

Keep in mind that having a my sites host (required for User Profile service) and actually allowing users to create and view personal sites are two entirely different things. You should definitely create a my site host if you plan on using any of the User Profile features, but you can easily remove the ability for users to create acual "My Sites" (i.e. personal sites) afterwards.
