1)  Document the Naming Convention

Determine a naming convention for each of the Visio Graphics Service Application components.  Document the naming convention.

Application Pool Service Account:  Domain\SvcAccount (this should already be created)
Application Pool: SvcApp_SPServiceApplicationPool_02 (this should already be created)

$SvcApp = New-SPVisioServiceApplication -ApplicationPool $SvcAppPool02 -Name "SvcApp_SPVisioServiceApplication_01"
6)  Verify the Service Application.
Get-SPServiceApplication | Select Name

5)  Create the Service Application Proxy and assign it to the Service Application.
