Office Web Apps–Unable to process the request.


So the strangest error came up in our environment today.

When users go to open excel documents, they get this message:
Unable to process the request.  Wait a few minutes and perform this operation again.

I did a trace in ULSLogViewer:

There was an error in communicating with Excel Calculation Services http://xxxxxx:12345/fc4fbe4d08ge4a5589e844e33e8d3c08/ExcelService*.asmx exception: An error has occurred. [Session:  User: domain\yyyyyyy].

This didn’t say a whole lot, so I went to IIS Manager (inetmgr) on the system.  I saw the service and the app pool looked like it was up and working fine.  However, it still didn’t work.

After performing an “IISRESET”, it worked juts fine.
