Adventures of setting up MOSS on Windows 2008 – Part 2

Continuing my journey of trying to install MOSS on Windows 2008, I came across a couple of other issues.

Services on Server

When I tried to start Excel Services, I received the following error;

Failed to resolve the site ID for ‘Office Server Web Services’


I found this post which has a work around Click Here

It shows a Powershell script

Start Powershell and run the following command;

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

Exit Powershell and Restart it.

The following is the script to start Excel Services
Set-Alias stsadm $env:CommonProgramFiles"\Microsoft Shared\Web Server

stsadm -o provisionservice -action start -servicetype "Microsoft.Office.Excel.Server.ExcelServerSharedWebService,Microsoft.Office.Excel.Server, Version =, Culture = neutral,PublicKeyToken = 71e9bce111e9429c"

iisreset /noforce

It seems to work okay, but it is a concern that there doesn’t seem to be a reason why at this point.
