SharePoint 2013 TIP: How to create and remove a Managed Metadata Service Application

Introduction

This posting is a stub that collates ongoing notes on creating, updating and removing a Managed Metadata service application.  Removing the managed metadata service application also includes removing the managed metadata database and application pool (if one was created specifically for this service).

Creating the service using PowerShell

New-SPServiceApplicationPool -Name AppServicesAppPool -Account "DOMAIN\spFarm" New-SPMetadataServiceApplication -Name "Managed Metadata Service Application" -ApplicationPool "AppServicesAppPool" -DatabaseName "ManagedMetadata" New-SPMetadataServiceApplicationProxy -Name "Managed Metadata Service Application Proxy" -ServiceApplication "Managed Metadata Service Application"
