The EXCEL SERVER PROCESSING object, configures an Excel Server and its communication with the EASA Server, for details see Configure a Compute Server.
Tip: When configuring an Excel Server, you can usually use the existing default EXCEL SERVER PROCESSING object under DEFAULT SERVER PROCESSING. Exceptions include use of a 'Port Number' within the Remote Server software other than 80 or a change in the 'Username' and 'Password' for authenticating communications with Remote Servers.
Excel Add-ins are disabled by default in EASA Excel processes for performance reasons.
In most cases full functionality is available without Add-ins.
To add permissions for the tomcat service to a new user see DCOM settings for an Excel Server.
