Good day. Problem: The Visio service automatically turns off after (approximately) a day after the forced start from SP CMD. On the page next to the Visio Services line, an error is displayed: In the column, "meets the requirements" - Fix. When pressed and corrected, the service application does not start automatically.

This is because you are attempting to start it on an Application + Search. Visio Service will only run on a server using a Custom, Web Front End, or Single Server Farm roles.

Note that Visio Services should only run on Front Ends to provide your end users with the best experience.

  • Thank you very much. I study aspects of the server role. Let me know more from you. In my current configuration, will any of the following work: PerformancePoint; PoverView; power BI?? – AlexGR Feb 23 at 6:56
  • (I don't know how the management will decide on the role of the server. But in the near future I need to find a solution for the task of graphs. The client will provide data and I have to display it graphically and even with the ability to switch between indicators. (3 levels of nesting). Maybe you have ideas? Thank you. – AlexGR Feb 23 at 6:59
  • Alex, that sounds like a different question than the one you originally asked -- can you please post that as a new question? Your only option for starting Visio Services is to change the MinRole for the server in question. – Trevor Seward Feb 23 at 16:41
  • ok. I will create. thank – AlexGR Feb 24 at 6:56
