It’s Friday so I’ll keep this short
The ongoing power struggle between SharePoint and it’s tamers continues. Today we’re faces with a clean installation of SharePoint 2016, using the same automated installation script as two other identical environments, except this time, providing us with a lovely “The server failed to process the request.” Visio Graphics Services error. For the sale of brevity, here’s the fix.
- Open a SharePoint Management Shell as Administrator
- Copy, paste, and run this: $webapp = get-spwebapplication(“http://your.sharepointserver.url”)
- Copy, paste, and run this: $webapp.GrantAccessToProcessIdentity(“mydomain\sp_visiosvc”)
- Refresh the Visio document
