In previous blog posts, I shared detail on Installation and configuration of SharePoint 2016 and also for WFEs. In this blog I am sharing the details on how to manually provision Usage and Health Service using PowerShell.

Provision the SharePoint Usage and Health Data Collection service application in order to name the database according to the preferred naming convention.

$UsageService = Get-SPUsageService

New-SPUsageApplication –Name “[Name]” -DatabaseServer “[Server]” -DatabaseName “[DB Name]” –UsageService $UsageService
