|SharePoint site DNS management||Install and configure the DNS service to enable Services Manager to manage DNS for SharePoint sites.|
|Web hosting service||Install and configure the Windows Web Hosting service on the same SharePoint server that hosts the SharePoint web service.|
|Service ports||Open ports 8095-8098 and 5985 from the server hosting the SharePoint and Windows Web Hosting services to the Services Manager Web and Provisioning platform servers.|
SharePoint 2010: Disabled. To do this:
SharePoint 2010 and 2013 use PowerShell remoting to communicate with other servers in the environment. PowerShell remoting must be enabled on the SharePoint server as well as on the Web and Provisioning servers in your Services Manager deployment. Additionally, Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) authentication must be enabled.
Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role Server
Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role Client -DelegateComputer *.domain
The requirements in this section are applicable to both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 unless otherwise specified.
The SharePoint web service is deployed on the application (front-end) server in the SharePoint farm. During the web service installation process, the Services Manager Configuration Tool sets the SharePoint web service to the same application pool identity as the SharePoint Central Administration site. This configuration is required for Services Manager to provision SharePoint resources.
For deployment instructions, see Deploy the SharePoint 2010 service.
Citrix recommends deploying the SharePoint web service as a dedicated web service. This method improves performance by avoiding the potential for "double-hopping," where web service connections are relayed through a single point to other SharePoint servers. Using a dedicated web service also improves reliability in the event of a server failure, as there are other SharePoint servers that can provide web service connections.

In Services Manager, SharePoint 2013 farms can have one of the following licenses: Foundation, Standard, or Enterprise.
When a SharePoint farm has only Foundation features enabled, customers are billed for each site with access to those features. When a farm has Standard or Enterprise features enabled, customers are billed for each user provisioned to a site with access to those features. For users of Standard or Enterprise sites, the license they are provisioned governs the set of features that are available when they access the site. For example, if a user has a Standard license and accesses a site with Enterprise features, the license allows the user to access only the Standard set of features on the site.
To determine whether or not per-user licensing is enabled for a farm, use the SharePoint cmdlet Get-SPUserLicensing.
When you create a SharePoint farm through the control panel, the farm has Foundation licensing by default. You can configure the license on the Services > SharePoint 2013 > Farm Configuration page. However, after the farm is provisioned to a customer, you cannot modify the license.
|To use this option...||These items are required...|
|Edit Office Web Apps||
|Project Web Apps||
When these options are enabled for the farm, you can choose to enable these options for users that are provisioned with Standard or Enterprise user plans (and the appropriate product licenses). These options apply to all sites to which users are provisioned. For example, if a user has the Edit Office Web Apps option enabled and has a Microsoft Word user license, the user can modify Word documents stored on all of the SharePoint sites to which the user has access. However, if the Edit Office Apps option is disabled for the user, then the user can no longer modify Word documents on any of their sites.
