Error Creating Site Collection

  
Hello, I have created a basic claims-based web app in SharePoint 2010. When I try to create a Site Collection, after filling out all the details, I get the following error:   Error  Cannot complete this action. Please try again.  Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.  Correlation ID: 349b9ae9-7bda-41eb-921a-87974afb289c    I have tried ever which way to try and get it to work, but am still stuck. Any ideas as to why I can't create a Site Collection? Thanks!

Creating a new root Site Collection using a custom site definition file (ONET.XML)

  
Using Powershell, I am trying to deploy the our custom solution to SP 2010.  The script is doing the following: Deleting the web application using Remove-SPWebApplication Creating a new web application using New-SPWebApplication Adding and deploying a series of WSP files (one of which has the site definition file in it) using Add-SPSolution and Install-SPSolution Create a root site collection based on the site definition file provided in the WSPs using New-SPSite I get the error "WARNING: Template is not found and is not applied." When I run Get-SPWebTemplate, my site definition does not show up. I saw this: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en/sharepoint2010general/thread/5ea46e07-a4b0-4bab-b698-9b6eeb695607 but I want a solution that does not involve me reloading a DLL, as, I feel there is something else I am forgetting. I have also tried: IISReset Resetting the timer service Cleaning the Cache (as described here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939308) Nothing seems to work.  Does anyone have any ideas?

host-named site collection, 401 error (SP Foundation 2010)

  
I'm trying to create a host-named site collection. However, after its creation, I try to access it with the browser and I'm challenged to enter my username/password  (validating through Active Directory, I believe) and I get a blank page. Looking in the IIS log I see a 401 error with sub-status 1. I'm creating everything programmatically through the  API. I'm following this article:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc288637.aspx# It's not clear in the article exactly what DNS does or should do with host-named site collections. I added a line to my hosts file: 127.0.0.1   altlocalhost And I can ping altlocalhost with no problem. When I deploy directly a simple site collection without host-named stuff I'm not challenged to enter user name/password and the site works fine (and I'm authenticated with AD).

Creating a dynamic site using custom template programmatically.

  

Hi,

I have sites like

http://kashyap

http://kashyap/Team

http://kashyap/Team/Project1

I have created Project1 as Template (Save as Template) and this template is available at http://kashyap Site Gallery > Solutions

http://kashyap/Team has a list called projects. I want to do custom workflow which is run by user manually(It is not problem). I want to create site programmatically  based on the template. I did some code Its

 private void codeCreateSite_ExecuteCode(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
      SPWeb web = workflowProperties.Web;


      SPListItem lst = workflowProperties.Item;
      string title = lst["Project Title"].ToString();

      string desc = "Project from " + Common.GetFormatedValue(Convert.ToString(lst["Customer"

Creating a Site Column that Looks up an External List causes error when saving site as a template.

  

I'm not sure what the best practice is here, but I'm having a major issue trying to save sites as templates and I think I narrowed it down as to what the issue is.

When I try to save a site as a template, it creates the solution package, but it doesn't activate it.  When I try to activate it manually, I get the following error:

Feature definition with Id e9431ed5-27b1-4c33-9eeb-81b4ace9d372 failed validation, file 'test1ListInstances\ElementsFields.xml', line 481, character 231: The 'SystemInstance' attribute is not allowed.

I opened up the solution package and looked at the ElementsFields.xml file.  I traced the line to this:

<Field Type="BusinessData" DisplayName="Acme People Name" Required="FALSE" EnforceUniqueValues="FALSE" Group="Custom Columns" ID="{55b3bbba-a7e3-4698-9946-648a6b726e9e}" SourceID="{026904fd-f2d0-4e57-a239-c6da838458fa}" StaticName="Acme_x0020_People_x0020_Name" Name="Acme_x0020_People_x0020_Name" SystemInstance="ACME" EntityNamespace="http://????????:28241" EntityName="People" BdcField="FullName" Profile="" HasActions="True" SecondaryFieldBdcNames="0" RelatedF

site collection 404 not found error

  

Hi All,

Over the past few weeks we have been using the Sharepoint 2010 wiki site collection quite happily. Yet today it stoped working providing only a single line 404 NOT FOUND response.

 

We are not aware that anyone made any changes and when looking in the central administration we see nothing that indicates that that site collection is out of the ordinary.

Can someone please describe the steps we should take to determine what is causing the 404 NOT FOUND error. Once we learn how to idetify a cause for a problem we woulld be so much better equiped to solve potentially solve the problem.

Kind regards,

 

Ed
