Office Web Apps and SharePoint 2013…small tip to your custom web app

Category: #SharePointSharePoint 2013 Comments: No comments

If you want to install Office Web Apps and configure it with you SharePoint 2013 you will find plenty of links…Here a couple that I found pretty simple: this one from Max Melcher and also this one from Steve Goodyear…
However, once followed all the steps, I still had an error on my preview mode. Searching in the logs (you can find the logs of Office Web Apps in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\OfficeWebApps\Data\Logs\ULS) I found this error:

WOPI CheckFile: Catch-All Failure [exception:Microsoft.Office.Web.Common.EnvironmentAdapters.FileUnknownException: Invalid Host

As you can see, during the installation you have to apply the operation of  New-OfficeWebAppsHost -Domain yourdomain.com. What it is important to know is that you have to apply this step for all your domains and DNS. Example if you have your domain name contoso.com, but your SharePoint web application is mytestclient.com you have to apply the PowerShell steps for all of this.
You do not need to restart anything…once done your command the preview and visualization will work immediately!
