SharePoint 2016 MinRole

Question asked by mark.d.roush@ojd.state.or.us on Nov 8, 2018

Being the former administrator of a SharePoint 2013 farm, I was happy when Microsoft came out with Mini Roles in SharePoint 2016.  If you are running a medium size farm with multiple servers, Mini Roles were a convenient way of setting the services without having to configure each server.  I am having issues with my servers being Non-Compliant because of the Nintex services.

 

In particular, some of the new roles that were added

 

ApplicationWithSearch
WebFrontEndWithDistributedCache

 

The suggestion I have seen is, if your servers are non-compliant with these roles because of the:

 

Nintex External Forms Online Service

(this is the service I am having an issue with)

 

The solution is to set the server role to Custom.  I really do know what to do that.

 

I have just upgraded to 4.3.3 and was hoping this would be resolved but I have still having an issue when I use the above roles.

 

Has anyone found a solution to using mini-roles without setting your server to Custom?
