Powershell – Create Visio Service Application

Powershell Script

I got the problem, that the Visio Service Application was stopped and i was not able to start it. I tried via GUI and Powershell and so on. But even if i deleted the old one and create a new one, it stucks cause of timeout. So i created it from cratch by Powershell. Before i deleted everything (Service Application, Application Pool, Application Proxy) via Powershell. Now i’d like to share my Script for that:

[code language=”csharp”]

#Create Visio Application Pool
New-SPServiceApplicationPool -Name “Visio Graphic Service Application Pool”
$VisioAppPool = Get-SPServiceApplicationPool “Visio Graphic Service Application Pool”

#Create Visio Service Application
$VisioApp = New-SPVisioServiceApplication -ApplicationPool $VisioAppPool -Name “Visio Graphic Service Application”
Get-SPServiceApplication | Select Name

#Create Visio Application Proxy
$VisioAppProxy = New-SPVisioServiceApplicationProxy -ServiceApplication “Visio Graphic Service Application” -Name “Visio Graphic Service Application Proxy”
Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | Select Name

#start service if it’s not running
$visio = Get-SPVisioServiceApplication


In my case it was important to call $visio.Provion() to start the Service Application. Afterwords i had to start the service itself via Central Administration at Manage Services. It worked like a charm.
