Office Web Apps Server Error


Issue

After following the basic install procedure I attempt to look at the Office Web Apps Farm configuration with the PS command Get-OfficeWebAppsFarm.
The following error is thrown..


Although many blogs explain that this issue is related to installing on a different drive than C, or that its specific to Windows Server 2008 or 2012

Solution

I found that (IMHO) the issues was unrelated to installation path or server version. Instead it appears to be an issue with the ASP.NET installationregistration with IIS.

This can be reinstalledregistered with the following command

C:WindowsMicrosoft.NETFramework64v4.0.30319aspnet_regiis.exe -ir

NOTE
-ir – Installs ASP.NET and registers with IIS

Re-running Get-OfficeWebAppsFarm now works as expected

About Paul B

My name is Paul Bloem and I am employed at Lexel Systems in New Zealand as a Principal Consultant for Unified Communications. I have been working on enterprise voice solutions for over 20 years. My first 10 years were spent working for a Telco in South Africa (Telcom SA). This is where all the groundwork happened as I was exposed to just about every aspect of telecommunication you could imagine. I develop an interest in PBX technologies and eventually became the go-to guy. Next, I had a 10 year run at Siemens South Africa, most of my time there was as a Technical Trainer. During this time VoIP hit the world stage, I had the privilege of introducing VoIP both as H.323 and later SIP across the Siemens HiPath 4000 solution stack. In 2008 I immigrated to New Zealand with my newly attained MCSE, I was ready to go where no PBX Techie had gone before. I was employed to explore OCS 2007 and that was pretty much the beginning of the end for me. I have been working on OCS and Lync ever since. My current role focuses exclusively on Lync and associated technologies.. That includes pre-sales, consulting, architecture and design, training and support. I even get to play in the development space from time to time - focus on play ;-) I was nominated as a Microsoft VTSP for Lync early in 2013 and also awarded Microsoft's MVP award for Lync in 2014.
