When I have seen this in customer servers, it's almost always a firewall that is blocking access to the map servers.
One way to test is this:
1. install the same version Tableau Desktop on the Tableau Server
2. Try to load the same workbook on Desktop and observe
3. If it works great, it means that the query to the outside world worked without firewall using a user account (since you have to register a license)
4. If you get the same blocking, then it is that firewall blocking all traffic on the server
You can force client side browser. It may have been turned off by using this command:
tsm configuration set -k vizqlserver.browser.render -v false. (that turns it off and makes the server go out to the map servers)
tsm configuration set -k vizqlserver.browser.render -v true (turns it one and send mapping to the browser of the client for rendering)
Try this: at the end of the browser url that is circling, add this
That will test if client side rendering is on or off
It's worth checking your firewall again. It might be a combination of local Windows Server firewall and/or the network firewall or a faulty proxy server not working properly.
It's worth using a network trace tool to see the flow of traffic out from that server.
