How to disable Office Web Apps (OWA) for the MySite Web Application in SP 2010?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
We have OWA installed on the SP 2010 farm and works fine. We would like to disable the OWA functionality only on the MySite Web App. We want to use OWA on the other web application that hosts our team sites. What are my options?

Do you need to license Office Web Apps seperate from sharepoint server 2010 enterprise license?

Hi All, I been reading this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff431687.aspx#bkmk_ins_exis_farm  and have come to the conculsion that if you want word viewing services and power point services you need to license and download office web apps separate from the SharePoint Licensing/download. Can anyone confirm this that may know more about the subject? I thought those services would come along with enterprise but from what I’m reading I guess not.   Regards, Jeff

Multi-tenancy integration with Office Web Apps and SharePoint 2010 - Possible Solution?


Hi All, I've been scratching my head trying to figure out how to integrate Office Web Apps in to SharePoint 2010 as a hoster.  The issue was after following various posts, documents and so on, I could enable the Office Web Apps on the main site collection but not our organisation as a test tenant.  We are running SharePoint 2010 feature pack.  

When attempting to add the office feature pack, we would run in to a problem:

Enable-SPFeature : Failed to activate feature 'MobileExcelWebAccess' (id: 'e995e28b-9ba8-4668-9933-cf5c146d7a9f').  To figure out if this was just an issue with the Enterprise Feature MobileExcelWebAccess, I decided to enable the feature for standard temporarily and discovered a range of services that needed to be added to the feature pack.

So after much thinking about this, we felt that Office Web Apps should be available as a separate feature pack for Foundation, Standard or Enterprise rather than adding to the existing feature packs and migrate the customer, so long as the customer has the correct SPLA or Volume License.  

Based on this, we created 3 new feature packs that supported Office Web Apps.  For those who have grappled with this same concept, here are the feature ID's you need to add to t
