VM Servers: Windows 2012 R2 Servers (several servers for ArcGIS (eg. map, gp, img sites) and another for the Portal, federated, webadaptor and HTTPS only configured).
Desktop: Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64bit with Office 2010 32bit
Installed the Resources on the portal server and the ArcGIS Maps for Office 4.0 x86 on the desktop using the download url in esri's documentation (http://doc.arcgis.com/en/maps-for-office/install-and-configure/work-with-portal-for-arcgis.htm)
Portal webadaptor is https://esridev.myergon.local/portal
With configuration of Excel ArcMaps of Office portal url pointing to above, I click on Sign In and a message box appears with the following message
I have looked through the documentation and can't find a cause, solution, etc. for the above error message.
Could someone help me to find out what is causing this?
If I change the url is point to our organisation on arcgis.com, it works. It appears to be our on premise portal
Solved! Go to Solution.
Have you installed the ArcGIS Data Store and enabled your Portal to have a hosting server? I did not see ArcGIS Data Store when you listed your configuration. Please see these help topics:
The data from ArcGIS Maps for Office when published to Portal for ArcGIS are stored in the ArcGIS Data Store.
Hope this helps,
We do have Datastore installed. I doubled checked the server & portal configuration and server has the datastore registered and portal has this server as the hosting server.
I found another PC to do some more testing. This PC is a Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 32bit with Office 2010 32bit.
Installed the software the same way (eg. path, options, portal url) as the 64bit OS machine and it works.
Any other tips/suggestions on where to go next?
So you're saying that the deployment works on one client machine (Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 32bit with Office 2010 32bit) but not on the other (Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64bit with Office 2010 32bit) is that right?
Then something's amiss with the installation/configuration of the second 64bit client machine. Suggest you recheck that everything's set-up properly on the 64bit client machine. Don't mean to state the obvious, but did you install the correct ArcGISMapsForOffice OS file, in other words: 32bit vs 64bit install files?
(please see the note at the top of the page)
Hope this helps,
That's right. I checked again to make sure I was using the correct installer too. I ran the x64 installer just for the hell of it and message appears regarding this installer was incorrect due to an Office x86 install was detected.
I went back to scratch and rebuilt the PC as a Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64bit with Office 2010 32bit. Ran 'ArcGISMapsForOffice_x86_4.0_en.exe' again with the configuration/url as before and now it works.
Sorry for the trouble before. Before I started the install the first time, I rebuilt PC to make sure nothing would clash, etc.
Can you please elaborate on the error you're encountering? Where along the steps does the issue occur? Provide a screenshot(s). Also what release of Portal for ArcGIS, MS Office are you using?
We have a Portal for ArcGIS 10.5 on Linux Red Hat. We install Office 2016 64 bit on a windows pc and consequently Maps for Office 64 bit 4.1. When we tried to pass the url of our Portal in the Office plugin, the error message below is displayed.
We tried to follow the steps described in this link Work with Portal for ArcGIS—ArcGIS Maps for Office | ArcGIS but we did not succeed.
Unfortunately, I don't have much experience deploying Portal for ArcGIS on Linux, sorry. Suggest you contact Esri Tech Support and open an issue so they can investigate further.
Just to check: you've configured your Portal to be a hosting server, right?
