On my server Excel Calculation Service is "started".
I tried to create new Excel Service Application but after some time I get following error.
And this is how it looks like after that.
If I try to delete, it takes even longer time (probably a few hours) and then show same request time out message.
From logs, I found two entries but none give any clue as to what the issue is.
System.Web.HttpException: Request timed out.
SPTimerJobAsyncResult '9e0cc344-ae13-47f8-8b43-a0535e885651': An error occurred while waiting for completion: System.Threading.ThreadAbortException: Thread was being aborted. at System.Threading.Thread.SleepInternal(Int32 millisecondsTimeout) at System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(Int32 millisecondsTimeout) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPJobDefinition.WaitForCompletion(TimeSpan timeout) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPTimerJobAsyncResult.WaitForCompletion(Object state)
Could this be happening because Distributed Cache service is also not running on server and I tried to fix it but no luck?
