Two Farms with UPS and MySite Host in different farms

Sep 5, 2012 at 9:51 PM

Brain,

I am building two farms:

enterprise services farm = mms, search, ups/upa services and one web app for Content Type Hub - NOTE: No web app for MySite Host

consumer farm = MySite Host Web App but will NOT have UPS/UPA service application.

The version of autospinstaller (2.5.7) I am using seems to assume a MySite Web App/Host  will be created if the farm has UPS provision= to anything other than false.

Is this be design? (It makes sense to simplify the process of creating both, since normally both would be hosted in the same farm, but, in my case it doesn't scale well). If so, should I just not provision ups/upa in either farm via script and just setup manually?

Or, you could just let the script do what it thinks it should (as you noted, works in most scenarios where we aren't scaling to the extent you are) and simply delete what you don't need afterwards. Your choice.

HTH,
Brian
