Event Name: Host End Point Was Disallowed

Event ID: 8116

Symptom: The host endpoint server domain isn't on the list of allowed domains for the farm.

Causes: One of the following might be the cause:

  • The list of allowed domains is incomplete.

  • A request was initiated from a server that isn't allowed to use the farm. This could mean that someone is hacking into the domain either intentionally or accidentally.

Resolution: One of the following actions will resolve the issue:

  • Add the host endpoint server domain to the list of allowed domains by using the New-OfficeWebAppsHost Windows PowerShell cmdlet.

  • Allow all domains by removing all domains from the list of allowed domains. You can do this by using the Remove-OfficeWebAppsHost Windows PowerShell cmdlet.
