Gotcha when administrating multiple MMS’ in SharePoint


If you create more than one managed metadata service in SharePoint and want to enter one of them via Central Admin, make sure BOTH are checked off as available services for the Central Admin web application. If only one is selected, then clicking either MMS will take you to the one assigned to the web application.

Click Service Connections for the Central Admin web app and check both MMS’


When entering either MMS for administration you will see both listed in the drop-down for available MMS’, and the one you clicked will be pre-selected.
