SharePoint 2016 Central Admin: System Settings – Manage Services on Server

Manage Services on Server (direct Link http://centraladmin-url/_admin/Server.aspx)

Note: You should be login with Farm administrator with local admin on the server, otherwise this option will not visible.

When you click on the Manage Services on Server Link, you will be landed on Services On Server. This page will give you the information about the Services on a single Server. This page looks like the same as Services in the farm but it is slightly different than it. I will explain it a little bit.

This farm is consisting of two SharePoint servers, this page list the Services on the individual server (one you selected). On this page you will get the option to start a service instance or stop it. Following information will be on the page.

  • Service: this column lists all the services instances which are provisioned on this server, irrespective of their status (start /Stop). With the MinRole, you will see less service instances over here.
  • Status: this column tells about the status of service instance whether it is stopped or start.
  • Compliant: This column is also come with the MinRole feature, this section is controlled by the health analyzer rule, which run overnight. If health rule dedicate the server is not complaint with the configured role, then it will attempt to auto provision all the services which are un-provisioned also stop the services which are not compliant with the server role to make it compliant. You may notice one thing; compliant Section is blank for the Custom Role (See the Picture above). Custom role is same as Application role in the SharePoint 2013.So don’t be surprised about it.
  • Action: In this column you will get an option to start or stop a service instance. But only for the services instance which are available under assigned server’s MinRole. You get full option with custom role but limited for the all other Minroles.
  • Server: from this drop-down you get any option to change the server ( by default the Central admin server selected).
  • Role: This box shows the Minrole assigned to the server
  • View: this dropdown gives us two view options Configurable or All. By default, Configurable is selected.

How to select the Different server?

  • Log on the central admin with farm admin account with local admin on server
  • Click on the Drop-Down in the Server Section then click on Change Server
  • On the New Pop-Up, Select the server you want to get the information (in our case Kf-SP1).
  • Now You will see the list of services on the KF-SP1 server.
    As I mentioned earlier, In the action section you will get less control as this server has Front-End with Distributed Cache role.

How to change the View.

  • On the same page in the view section, click on the drop-down and select the All ( you will see both view options here)
  • You will get the information like below in All view.
    View for the Server KF-SP1 All view for the Server KF-SP
