I recently was asked a few questions I couldn't find answers to. I'm sharing answers here to help people avoid the process I needed to go through to find the answers.

  1. Can I use Office Online Server 2016 with SharePoint 2010?

    1. T his article gets close to answering the question , but doesn't include SharePoint 2010. Unfortunately, the answer is no, you cannot connect OOS and SharePoint 2010. SharePoint 2010 does not support WOPI .



  2. Can I consume SharePoint 2013 service applications from SharePoint 2016?

    1. Again, the answer is no. When consuming services we support consuming from N-1. Examples...

      1. SharePoint 2016 services CAN be consumed by SharePoint 2013 (N-1)

      2. SharePoint 2013 services CAN be consumed by SharePoint 2010 (N-1)

      3. SharePoint 2016 services CAN NOT be consumed by SharePoint 2010 (N-2)

      4. SharePoint 2013 services CAN NOT be consumed by SharePoint 2016 (N + 1)
