How to move web front end server in SharePoint (2010/2013)

How to move web front end server in SharePoint


When i install a new SharePoint farm i often make the mistake to run the configuration wizard on the application server first. this results in the Central Administration and all web applications to be hosted on the application server instead of the web front end server.
follow this guide to solve the issue.

The solution consists of 4 steps.
1. Unprovision the Central Admin from the application server
2. Provision the Central Admin to the web front end server
3. Update alternative access mappings

And in more detail:

1. Unprovision the Central Admin from the application server

Log in to application server and start the SharePoint Configuration wizard.
Click Next/Yes and make sure you do not desconnect from the farm.
 

Click Yes to remove the Central Admin and web sites from the machine.

If you do not see the above screen click "Advance Settings" on the summary page.
 
Run the wizard.

2. Provision the Central Admin to the web front end server

Log in to web front end server and start the SharePoint Configuration wizard.
Click Next/Yes and make sure you do not desconnect from the farm.
Click Next/Yes until you are at the summary page, Click the Advance Settings button.


On the Advance Settings page choose to host the web site.
Run the wizard.

3. Update alternative access mappings

The alternative access mappings are not updated by default, you have to do this manually.
Go to Central Administration and click on Alternative Access Mappings.

Update the mappings here to the front end server.
