SharePoint 2010 + Office Web Applications issues

  Asked By: Valarie    Date: Aug 06    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 4600

Windows Server 2008 R2
SQL Server 2008 R2
SharePoint 2010 RTM + all required perquisites the installer called for
Office Web Applications RTM

This is a new install on a newly built (out of the box installs for everything)
system. After installing SharePoint 2010 and not running the SharePoint Products
and Technologies Configuration Wizard, I installed the Office Web Applications.
At the end of the Web Applications install, I opted to run the Configuration
wizard and complete the required steps.

Following that ...launching Central Administration results in the following:

- Service Unavailable / HTTP Error 503. The service is unavailable.

- Request for security token failed with exception:
System.ServiceModel.ServerTooBusyException: The HTTP service located at
http://localhost:32843/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/securitytoken.svc is too
busy. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (503)
Server Unavailable. At System.Net.HttpWebRequest.GetResponse() at
quest.WaitForReply(TimeSpan timeout) --- End of inner exception stack trace ---
Server stack trace: at.... Logged in the ULS logs.

...going to check the usual places again to see if there are any hints on what
could be the issue before I call PSS.

I have never, ever gotten OWA to work if I installed it after I ran the
Configuration Wizard. L I've heard tales of people doing it, but I think
the easter bunny must have helped them.

I know that's not any help, but hopefully this can serve as a cautionary
tale. If you're going to use the OWAs, install them after you install
SharePoint 2010 but BEFORE you run the Config Wizard the first time.

This makes me feel a little better... haha. I'm in the process of
rebuilding my development server right now... in case I was "doing it wrong".
Will put some updated info out as soon as I've finished. Installing SQL Server
2008 R2 right now.

We got the office  web apps installed fine after configuring and using
the farm. Dunno what we did, but I do make a point of not biting off the
chocolate bunny ears at easter...

Did you do anything besides running the OWA install EXE, running the
Config Wizard, and enabling the Feature? I've done that several times
after a SharePoint 2010 farm was already configured and in use and it's
never worked.

Answer #5    Answered By: Ciara Collier     Answered On: Aug 06

We just ran the install, and then ran the Products Configuration Wizard, and
finally the farm configuration wizard in CA and that worked.

MS recommends installing SP 2010 and not configuring the SP site.
Then you install webapps and run the config utility

You would assume if you wanted to do it after the fact the user
experience should be the same. Unfortunately, it's not.

I'm good to go now, thanks.


Actually has some incorrect PowerShell syntax. For instance,
Get-SPServiceApplicationPool -Name, should actually be -Identity.
