SharePoint 2013 Visio Services
One of the services that I hardly ever look at is Visio, so i decided to provision an instance on my SP2013 beta test server and take a look
Within Central Admin the provisioning process is pretty much the same as 2010.
For this Service Application I created a new managed account and app pool and provisioned the Service Application,
At first the service wouldn’t display a Visio web diagram (.vdw)
Not a very handy error
but the Event Log sheds more light on this
Go to Services on Server and start the Visio Service (it really bugs me that SharePoint 2010 doesn’t do this, looks like 2013 is the same)
After trying again, another error
Once again the event log shows what happened here, the managed account I created for the Visio Service Application has no access to the content db where the Visio diagram is.
so the same fix as SharePoint 2010 is needed here.
A look in SQL shows that the Service Account SP\SrvAcc now has the SPDataAccess role on the database WSS_Content_Teams database
Finally we have a Visio Web Diagram available in the browser.
so not much different from 2010 from this Point of view.
