Sharepoint 2010 – Cannot delete service application from Central Admin

 

When trying to delete a service application in Sharepoint 2010 from the central admin, sometimes you will find it just stays on the ‘processing’ window for hours (if you wait that long).

If it does you can try & delete the service application using Powershell:

1.Remove-SPServiceApplication

If that command doesnt work you can force the deletion by using STSADM:

 

1.STSADM -o deleteconfigurationobject -id {ID}

The above STSADM command is not documented by Microsoft (or doesnt seem to be)
