How to install Office Online Server for SharePoint 2016 (OOS)

Recently I wanted to create a SharePoint 2016 lab environment.   With Excel Services moving out of the SharePoint 2016 product, we now need to plan for an instance of OOS.   Below are the steps I followed and screenshots of the process.

Cheers!

Steps

  1. Install Windows Server 2012 R2 (en_windows_server_2012_r2_with_update_x64_dvd_6052708.iso)
    1. NOTE – Windows Server 2016 seems to be missing Ink and Handwriting Support.
  2. Run PowerShell to install IIS

  1. Install Windows Identity Foundation
  2. Install Ink and Hand Writing Services
  3. Get latest Windows Updates
  4. Generate Self Signed Certificate
    1. Start > Run > INETMGR > Server > Server Certificates > Generate self signed certificate with “OOS” Friendly Name
    2. Start > Run > INETMGR > Server > Server Certificates > Export “OOS” to PFX file
      with password

    3. Start > Run > CERTLM.MSC > add Local Machine certificates > import PFX to “Personal” folder
    4. Start > Run > CERTLM.MSC > add Local Machine certificates > import PFX to “Trusted Root Certificate Authorities” folder
  5. Install Office Online Server (en_office_online_server_may_2016_x64_dvd_8484396.iso)
  6. Create new OOS farm

Ever wondered what fixes are inside of a given CU?   Please see attached PDF with full detail. I wanted a new format for easy reading.   Show management and make the business case for why downtime should be taken to apply CUs.  Also posted at http://sharepointupdates.com/
