Adding Services to Default Application Proxy Group in SharePoint 2010
After you setup your Sharepoint, you later find that you have to add another service. (or you delete a service and recreate it)
In my case, I had to re-add the “User Profile Service Application”.
Turns out after I added it, the USPA was not part of the Default Application Proxy Group
(_admin/WebApplicationList.aspx -> Service Connections)
I found an article online by Amit Khanna Tittle “Associating services to Custom Application Proxy Groups in Sharepoint 2010”, which explained how to create a new group and associate a service, so I figured that would help me.
The one problem I found was that when I put in “default” as the proxy group name I got an error “Object not found”
It’s obviously an error with the Name or “Identity” of the ProxyGroup, and the command Get-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroup gives you the “friendly” name of the service, but not the real name. In order to get the real name you need to run this command “Get-SPServiceApplicationProxyGroup | Select Name,Id”Interestingly enough, you can see that the real name is “<blank>”.
