Fixing the Usage and Health Data Collection Service Application Proxy (By Tristan Watkins)

Unfortunately in every farm that I have provisioned so far using powershell I keep running into this issue that the Usage and Health Data Collection Service Application Proxy is set to Stopped.

The fix that Tristan Watkins describes on his blog here fixes just that.


#Run Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy to enumerate the IDs of all the Service Application Proxies in your farm.
DisplayName          TypeName             Id

#Copy the ID for the WSS_UsageApplication.
$UP = Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | where {$_.ID -eq "PASTE ID HERE"}

If you refresh the Manage Service Application page the proxy should be started now.
