Office Online Server Farm won't create - out of memory error

Kevin Oppenheimer 21 Reputation points

I installed Office Online Server (SW_DVD5_Office_Professional_Plus_64Bit_English_-6_OfficeOnlineSvr_MLF_X21-90444.ISO) on Windows Server 2019. The installation went fine but when I try to create a farm, I get the following error:

New-OfficeWebAppsFarm : The Office Online service failed to start. See the Windows Application Event Log for more details.
At line:2 char:1

  • New-OfficeWebAppsFarm -InternalURL " ...
  • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  • CategoryInfo : OperationStopped: (:) [New-OfficeWebAppsFarm], ApplicationFailedException
  • FullyQualifiedErrorId : AgentManagerStartFailed,Microsoft.Office.Web.Apps.Administration.NewFarmCommand

In the event log I see this:
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.OutOfMemoryException

If there a way to fix this issue?

    Office Online Server does not support Windows Server 2019. You can go to Win Svr 2016 max.
