What to do...

I am trying to use the script to install a mid size SP2010 farm.  I am able to create the first server, the Index server.  This server has two apps (MySite and Portal) and the two main site collecitons (MySte and Portal).  Now, I am not sure what needs to be omitted for the WFE server.  Meaning, which section of the input file I need to omit. 

To test, I copy the Index server input file and made a few minor changes.  However, I got error as shown below.  it looks like the script try to create the web or site collection again.  In short, what do I need to do?


- Creating web applications...

- Web app "Corptest" already provisioned.

- Site "corptest" already provisioned.

- Applying object cache accounts to "http://corptest.mydomain.com:80"...

- Done applying object cache accounts to "http://corptest.mydomain.com:80"

- Setting online webpart catalog access for http://corptest.mydomain.com:80

Nothing to be omitted. Assuming you built your App Server, for a WFE, I'd typically set the provisioning for CA and all Service applications to false and manually change the topology from the CA to put the Query component/Index on the WFE instead of App Server. This leaves me with 4 services running on the web front and there is no harm that the script is trying to re-provision the web apps.

What are those 4 services?
