Sharepoint 2010 - The Managed Metadata Service or Connection is currently not available. The Applica

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 13, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
So I've already installed hot fix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976394.  Rebooted server and I still get this message.  The account being used is part of local adminstrators group and has full connection permissions for managed metadata service.  Is there anything else I'm missing or needs to be done?

SharePoint 2010 Search Service - does not escape forbidden signs in Managed Metadata fields



I´m using SharePoint 2010s Search Service to get items from a list. In the list I have managed metadata field for Item. When I search on Item "Item 1 & 2" I get xml that is incorrect. SharePoint does not escape the &. (The mapping is correct so when I search on an item not containg & it returns correct xml.)

But if I in my description field writes "A description & some more text" then & is escaped.

Anyone seen this before? Is there some way to configure the search service to escape forbidden signs to return none broken xml?


Sharepoint 2010 Missing Managed Metadata Service


According to the following MS article, the Tags feature is linked to the Managed Metadata Service, which is required to use Tags. For some reason I cannot find this feature as described in the article where it specified Managed Metadata Service is located in the Application Management section. What should I check to make sure this feature/service can be enabled?



Managed Metadata Service or Connection is currently not available

In service applications this is listed as stopped. Under services on this server it is listed as started. I get the folowing message when I open properties from the service application then click 'ok' Object reference not set to an instance of an object.   Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

The Managed Metadata Service or Connection is currently not available.

I've been trying to create new Managed Metadata services but get this error when trying to manage them:
The Managed Metadata Service or Connection is currently not available. The Application Pool or Managed Metadata Web Service may not have been started. Please Contact your Administrator.

I've checked that the application pool that the Metadata service uses is running and that the account it's running under is in the farm administrators group. I've checked that the WCF hotfix is applied on the system by re-downloading KB971831 (I have Windows 2K8 SP2) and trying to run it again but it says it doesn't apply to my system (as I had installed it before installing SharePOint)

I'm not sure what else to do - can anyone give any pointers?


How to add custom properties to terms in the SharePoint 2010 managed metadata term store?


There is a "Term.CustomProperties" collection to get the collection of custom property objects for the current Term object from the read-only dictionary.
But where and how to define and set custom properies for terms? This dictionary seems to be read-only by default.

Any help / documentation would be appreciated. / Frank

Using Infopath 2010 to customize a SharePoint 2010 list with columns using Managed Metadata


Hello All-

I would like to customize the "new" form on a SharePoint list that has some columns that use managed metadata term sets as options.  Unfortunately, when I do so, I get the message:

"InfoPath cannot generate a form template for the SharePoint list."

The following fields in the SHarePoint list are not supported because of their data type and will not be available in InfoPath Designer:

-MyColumnName (TaxonomyFieldTypeMulti)

This error message seems to be pretty self explanatory, but it boggles my mind that this would be the case.  Can I really not customize my list "new" form in Infopath if I am using columns with managed metadata?  Any workarounds?

Service Application Connection: Managed Metadata Service is inaccessible


 Hello all,

I have published the MMSA in one farm so it can be connected to and consumed by another farm. The publishing farm URL is https (SSL) and the consuming farm is http (Non-SSL). The connection to the MMSA shows in Central Admin as succesful, however when I try to open the Managed Metadata in the term store in the consuming farm I get the following error:

"The Managed Metadata Service is inaccessible because the current web application has not been granted permissions to access it."

I followed all the steps in technet, including the certificate exchanges and the publishing farm MMSA has granted the consuming farm full control.


Any clues? Can a farm with SSL publish service applications to non-SSL farms?

SharePoint 2010 Search Service Application: "All Content" scope contains 0 items?

I've encountered a nasty bug in our setup. Our Search Service Application manages to crawl all content just fine. However, the scopes don't work. We've got a total of 570 items currently in our crawl database. 350 of these are of class 'People', and appear in the 'People' scope. The remaining 220 items should appear in 'All Content' as part of the intra (sites, documents etc), however the 'All Content' scope reports 0 items. I've tried the following: -Creating custom scopes (still 0 items) -Recreating the Search Service Application twice -Tried different accounts as the content access account. -Ensuring that the content access accounts do have 'full read policy' -Checked the crawl log for successful content (such as sites and documents). However, despite my efforts I still get 0 items for 'All Content'.  Has anyone else encountered this problem, or do you have any recommendation for us? Currently I don't see any other option than to reinstall everything.

problem rename sharepoint 2010 search service application admin database

Hi all, i have a problem that hopefully someone has an answer to.  i am not too familiar with sharepoint so please excuse my ignorance. we have sharepoint 2010 on a windows 2008r2 server.  everything seems to work fine.  but as you know, the default database names are horrendous.  i have managed to rename all of them, except for the "search service application" admin database. the default is: Search_Service_Application_DB_<guid> the other 2 databases (crawl and property) were renamed without a problem. we are following the article from technet on how to rename the search service admin db (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-nz/library/ff851878%28en-us%29.aspx).  it says to enter the following command: $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -DatabaseName "new database name" -DatabaseServer "dbserver" however, i get an error about identity being null.  no big deal, i add the -Identity switch and the name of my search service application.  but the real problem comes the error it throws:   Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication : The requested database move was aborted as the associated search application is not paused. At line:1 char:54 + $searchapp | Set-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication <<<<  -Identity "Search Service Application" -DatabaseName "ShareP

Using Web Service in SharePoint 2010 Standard Web part using Visual Studio 2010

Hi All,               Have an issue with  Web service in calling  by SharePoint 2010 Standard Web part using Visual Studio 2010. If you can tell where I went wrong or tips to solve this would be great for me. What I have done is like this.. 1) Created new 'Empty SharePoint' project : as Farm solution 2) Added Web parts 3) Trying to add Web Service : There was no option for adding Web Service , so added as 'Add new Service' , this created entries in app.config file 4) ServiceName : shown as name space  (what  I'm  expecting is as Global  object with all methods ) 5) Created Object of namespace.ServiceName.ServiceSoapClient and tried to call one of it's method 6) Build and deployed 7) While viewing that web part it is showing an error as [InvalidOperationException: Could not find default endpoint element that references contract 'SerialKeyService.ServiceSoap' in the ServiceModel client configuration section. This might be because no configuration file was found for your application, or because no endpoint element matching this contract could be found in the client element.]         Error in detail : [TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.]   at System.RuntimeTypeHandle.CreateInstance(RuntimeType t

Problem With SharePoint Designer 2010 and the Search.asmx Web Service

I've created a web service datasource on a 2010 site using SharePoint Designer. When I try to make use of the datasource on a page I get the "The server returned a non-specific error when trying to get data from the data source..." message. The datasource connects to _vti_bin/search.asmx. I am using the QueryServiceSoap port and operation QueryX. I've tried various queryXml strings, including site & people searches using both SQL and keyword syntax. eg <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?><QueryPacket xmlns="urn:Microsoft.Search.Query" Revision="1000"><Query domain="QDomain"> <SupportedFormats><Format>urn:Microsoft.Search.Response.Document.Document</Format></SupportedFormats> <Context>   <QueryText language="en-US" type="MSSQLFT"><![CDATA[ SELECT Size, Rank, Path, Title, Description, Write, Filename, Description, Author FROM scope() WHERE CONTAINS ('"Lorum"') AND  ( ("SCOPE" = 'All Sites') )   ORDER BY "Rank" DESC ]]></QueryText> </Context> <Range><StartAt>1</StartAt><Count>20</Count></Range> <EnableStemming>false</EnableStemming> <TrimDuplicates>true</TrimDuplicates> <IgnoreAllNoiseQuery>true&l
