A maximum number of 25 sessions can be active at the same time on Excel Services when you enable anonymous access to a SharePoint Server 2007 Web site

Symptoms

When you enable anonymous access to a Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Web site, a maximum number of 25 sessions can be active at the same time on Excel Services.

Cause

SharePoint Server 2007 supports anonymous access by mapping anonymous users to a single user account. Excel Services uses this user account to request all Microsoft Office Excel workbooks for anonymous users.

By default, the maximum number of sessions per user is 25. This number is set at the shared services provider level. It is not based on individual trusted file locations. Therefore, only 25 sessions for anonymous users can be active at the same time on Excel Services. This is true even if the Excel workbooks are in different trusted file locations.

  2. Type a valid user name and password, and then click OK.
