There are 2 places that "Search Visibility" can be set on WSS3 servers:
Default > Site Settings > Search Visibility
Central Administration > Site Settings > Search Visibility
What are the ramifications of "hiding" the Central Administration site from search?
SharePoint 2010 Enterprise (Configuration database version: 14.0.4762.1000 )
When trying to create a new site (Document Center) collection via Centeral Administration, I get the following error:
The parent content type specified by content type identifier 0x0101 does not exist.
In reviewing the log files there are a series of errors like:
Failed to get the content type elements.

(#-2146231997: Expression must evaluate to a node-set.)
... Repeat multiple times ...
Failed to find <ListTemplate> tag corresponding to ID "101", tried both onet.xml for site definition ID "0" language "1033" and global site definition. Operation failed.

Originally we had a 1 server standalone MOSS2007 install. (All service packs applied)
Then we added another server to the farm to act as a web server.
We decided to take the web server offline. So that ideally we would be back to our 1 server standalone setup. All our sharepoint sites still work fine after we did this, but things on the central administration side are horribly broken.
1. The web server still appears in farm topology even though it is offline, no longer exists. It also appears as "Windows SharePoint Services Database".
2. Trying to go into "Servers in farm" under Operations causes an unknown error.
3. Trying to go into "Timer job status" under Operations causes an unknown error.
The error log displays the following each time I try to access "Servers in farm" or "Timer job status"
OWSTIMER.EXE (0x199C) The following error occured while trying to read the ConnectionString property. Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Now before I try to do some serious reconfiguration I would like to backup my sites. If I use the "Perform a backup" feature in central administration, it tells me the backup job has been scheduled, but after waiting for hours it still hasn't started,

Using the information presented at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee554869.aspx (slightly modified to accommodate the fact that the SharePoint 2010 is today distributed
in the form of an ISO file), I was able to finish all steps including all 10 steps of the configuration wizard. Dismissing the wizard should result with launching the browser showing the new SharePoint site - in my case however, that browser shows a
completely empty page.
Similarly, selecting the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration entry from the Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products folder (on the list of all installed products) results with the browser started at URL http://nik-workstation:23789/ -
which is also completely empty
Since UAC is disabled - it ought to be the database. I believe that before installing SP 2010, I had SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 November CTP (this is required by Azure AppFabric development) and I was hoping that the SP installer will
find the database that fits the best.
What is the best way to handle this? What is causing the problem?
