Provisioning did not succeed. Details: Failed to create the 'Reusable Content' library. OriginalEx

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi there, I am trying to activate the Feature SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure in a Team Site, but I am getting the following message: Provisioning did not succeed. Details: Failed to create the 'Reusable Content' library. OriginalException: Column 'ShowInRibbon' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user. This environment is running SharePoint 2010 Server, as a result of an upgrade of MOSS 2007 by moving the Content Database. The visual upgrade was applied partially in this Site Collection, not for all the Web Sites. Interestingly for new SharePoint 2010 Site Collections the activation works fine! But not for this specific Site Collection. Any clues?

error with "Create new content" type Translation Management Library


I added the Translation Management feature today, using the following command line:

stsadm -o activatefeature -name TransMgmtlib -url http://mysite

everything seemed to work fine, as no error occurred at this stage, and when I go to my top level site settings, click on "Site libraries and lists", then "create new content" I now see "Translation Management" as an option.

I select this type, click Create, complete the first part of the 'wizard' (Name and Description, etc.), then I'm on step 2 and this is where the error occurs. 

  1. The Workflow select box is disabled, and from the articles I've read this should be usable.
  2. More critically, when I complete this form and click Next, I get a server error:

    Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster. 

I've googled around, and tried updating various items in my web.config and machine.config, but I cannot find the solution. A lot o

Failed to create AppDomain


Recently updated my system to use Visual Studio 2010, and projects will no longer compile. All of them give the error "Failed to create AppDomain." Intellisense does not work either (except for standard HTML tags), and individual pages will also not compile.

Points of note:

  • All sites are hosted on UNC shares (although it doesn't work on a new site created on local drive either)
  • Language is mostly C#
  • No explicit code is creating AppDomain objects
  • Sites compiled fine under both VS 2005 and 2008 both before and after VS 2010 installation
  • Sites compile and run fine from the IIS server on the remote machines (one IIS 6, one IIS 7)

Things I've tried (some obviously shouldn't have any bearing on it, but I've tried just about everything that anyone suggested on any forum I could find, most of which seemed to apply to IIS, not VS):

  • renaming/deleting security.config
  • running caspol -reset
  • re-registering asp.net: aspnet_regiis.exe -ua / aspnet_regiis.exe -i
  • removing VS 2005, 2008, 2010, and then re-installing just VS 2010
  • adding the UNC path to the local intranet zone (internet options control panel)
  • adding the UNC path to LocalIntranet_Zone in the ASP.Net 2.0 control panel (runtime security policy/machine/al

Copy the content of one form library to another form library



I have created a form library named "A" where I store all the info-path forms submitted by a certain group of people. In that form library I created a column "status". When the form is submitted the value of status will be "0". Once a person approves this form I am changing the status value to "1". If the value is changed to "1", that form should be copied or transferred to another form library named "B".

How can I implement this logic ? Any help...

Proxy failed to create remote object on the server

Hi, I am using .net remoting for inter-process communication between two processes on the same machine 1.   The first process is one of the Office application: Ecxel /   Word /   PP 2.   The other process is another application that interacts with one of the above. For that it needs office application object. For example: Excel The solution is comprised with 3 projects: Project #1: The remote object is a simple Called RemoteOfficeApplication – that simply wraps the required application object (Word / Excel / PP).   Project #2: The Server is a simple Office add-in, written with a Visual Studio Extensibility -> Shared project. This add-in is instantiated whenever Excel is lunched. This project reference project #1. Code: var channel = new TcpChannel (5003); ChannelServices.RegisterChannel(channel,true ); RemotingConfiguration.RegisterWellKnownServiceType( typeof (RemoteOfficeApplication.RemoteOfficeApplication ), “AppObj”, WellKnownObjectMode .Singleton);   Project #3: The Client is the process that requires the application object. This project also reference project #1. Code:   //Get Remote object proxy object remoteAppObject = Activator.GetObject(typeof(RemoteOfficeApplication.RemoteOfficeApplication), “tcp://localhost:5003/AppObj" ); //Cast the proxy var r

SPD workflow status show "starting" when I create a document from the library !!. and hangs

I have a document library in MOSS 2007. Have created a WF and that starts "autmatically when new item created" In the document library I have created couple of column those are mandatory (required columns) and user has to fill those column while uploading a document as well creating a document from library. WF has ran and completed succefully  when I use "upload" option to load a document.  As you are aware, when we "upload" a document, we will have to fill all "required columns" and the click "check in" command button.  After I do all this, document get loaded and WD ran succesfully. However, the WF is not running when I create a document (.docx) from this library (using "new" button) !!.  I have filled all required field in the document information panel . After save & exit from WORD application, I can see WF status as "starting". But, it never started and completed.  So I did following and found WF worked !! a) After creating document (.docx) using "new" option I found WF status "starting"!. So,  I did "Check-out and Check-in" manually from document library. After doing this,  WF ran and status has been changed as "completed" b) In SPD, I change workflow start option from "Automatic" to "Manually start".&nb

Create buttons for "new item" which create a new page of a specific content type

We have a Pages library (wiki) which supports a few content types (and page layout associated). We want to enable users to click a button for example of "new custom enterprise wiki page" - so a new page of content type article will be open in edit mode. Can someone help how to develop? (it has to mimic the behavior that happens when user creates new page from the Ribbon or Site actions and has to choose the content type, it also has to keep the new page in edit mode and not just create it).

Cannot create content database: The specified SPConfigurationDatabase Name=SharePoint_Config Parent=

Guys, This is the farm configuration: 1. SQL Server 2005 back end server 2. WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 WFE Server 3. WSS 3.0 / MOSS 2007 Index/WFE Server All servers are showing the version: in 'Servers in Farm' in C.A. When attempting to add a new content database, the following error is thrown in the web UI: The specified SPConfigurationDatabase Name=SharePoint_Config-New Parent=SPDatabaseServiceInstance has been upgraded to a newer version of SharePoint. Please upgrade this SharePoint application server before attempting to access this object. Furthermore the following is posted to the application event log on the WFE hosting central admin: Database 'SharePoint_Config-New' on SQL Server instance 'XXXXXXXX' is not empty and does not match current database schema. There is nothing of further interest in the trace log, just the same error as above. No errors on the SQL server either. Also no updates have been installed, and content databases HAVE been created since the last updates were installed 2 years ago. Can anyone suggest anything before I raise a call with MS? I have checked permissions for the sharepoint system account on the databases and all seems fine. Cheers, Conrad    Conrad Goodman MCITP SA / MCTS: WSS3.0 + MOSS2007

Using Workflow to create an InfoPath item in a Forms Library

Hi Experts: Here is my situation: I have a MOSS 2007 server with list A (regular sharepoint list) and List B (InfoPath form library with a published form) This is what I am trying to accomplish using SharePoint Designer: List A is just a basic list User changes a column in list A to a specific value A new form needs to be added to the forms library B SharePoint designer Workflow will not create a valid xml file in the List B forms library. It just creates an invalid file based on the .xsn file template. Does anyone have any experience creating a valid xml form in a forms library using SharePoint Designer workflow? I can't migrate to 2010 so that is not an option. Thanks for all your advise.
