Start the service instances

A service instance provides the physical location for a service application. You must start the service instances before you create the service applications and the service application proxies. You can start the service instances by using SharePoint Central Administration or by using Windows PowerShell.

Procedures in this task start the service instances on the server specified.

To start the service instances by using Central Administration

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products, and then SharePoint 2010 Central Administration.

3. On the SharePoint Central Administration home page, in System Settings, click Manage services on this server.

4. On the Services on server:<servername>page, start Excel Calculation Services (this might have been done earlier during previous steps), Word Viewing Service, and PowerPoint Service. The OneNote Web App does not use a SharePoint service.

Create the service applications and the service application proxies

After the service instances have been started, the service applications and the service application proxies which connect the SharePoint Web front-ends to the service applications must be created. You can create the service applications and the service application proxies for the Word, PowerPoint, and Excel Web apps by using Central Administration or by using Windows PowerShell.
