Missing "SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection Features" in Site COllection Feature



All collection sites seem to be missing on the "SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection Features" in Site COllection Feature. However, I have PowerPivot uninstalled and reinstalled. Not sure if this could be the reason for it.


SharePoint Server Publishing feature--Can't activate on site (activated fine at site collection lev

I have five site collections and one of them seems to have an issue with the SharePoint server publishing feature, which is activated at the site collection level. On any of the sites underneath that site collection, the Server Publishing feature is not activated and throws this error when I try to activate:


One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields.

If I try to create an Enterprise Wiki, I get the same thing:

One or more field types are not installed properly. Go to the list settings page to delete these fields.

I won't be able to create the wiki until I can get the SharePoint Server Publishing feature activated.

Any one have any ideas? the other 4 site collections are fine.

SharePoint 2007 activating Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure


We turned on the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature on our MOSS 2007 (after we already had sites created) to allow users to be able to use features like excel services and reporting which both require this be activated the Publishing feature to be turned on,  In order to do this you have to activate the Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature at I beleive the top level site, however when we activate this feature it changes the templates and navigation for all the existing SharePoint sites in our collection. 

Is there a way to turn this feature on with out impacting existing site sites?  Or am I doing something wrong that is causing this to happen?  Basically I need to know how I can activate this option (Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure) to just specific sites but not all or turn it on so it does not impact all sites?


Activate "Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure" in Central Admin

I wonder if it is possible to activate "Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure" in the Central Admin page?

When I try to do that I only get:

Publishing sites and features cannot be activated in the Central Administration Web Application.

On my other site collection(s) I manage to activate this feature by using the "publishing template".

In the logs of sharepoint ( C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\BIN ),
i see the following entries:

w3wp.exe (0x1168)                 0x1048 CMS                            Publishing Provisioning        6wy9 Unexpected CommonUtilities.ConfirmNotCentralAdminWebApp(): Failed trying to activate publishing sites/features on CentralAdmin Web App. WebUrl: 'http://hk81:9200'

Moving a larger Sharepoint 2007 site collection over to a new server



We have a Sharepoint 2007 site collection roughly 36 GB in size and have been having problems moving the site to a new server farm (Also 2007). We are trying the Sharepoint backup and restore method, but I understand that this method is not recommended for sites over 5GB. Has anyone moved a site of this size and how did you do it?

Thanks  Ron

Programmatically activate SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features


As my solution requires the enterprise features I'm required to activate them. Right now I'm doing it manually through "site settings -> site collection features", but I want to do it automatically when activating an other part of my solution. I've used PowerShell to see the difference for "Get-SPFeature -site myurl" before and after activating the enterprise feature by hand, but there're at least 10 site collection features being activated through this one click step.

Is there a list of features which are part of the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features or is there an easier way to activate them all at a time instead of doing it one by one programmatically.

Activating Publishing Feature for Team Site Template in SharePoint 2010


A new site collection has been created and uses SharePoint 2010 team site template. How can you activate the publishing feature on it?


I have activated the publishing feature at site collection and site level but I still can edit pages etc without requiring check out and approval/publishing. There are probably settings I need to activate on other doc libraries but I wanted to know the best practice for this scenario and how to configure it.

Office Sharepoint Server Search not working but Windows Server Search is.

I am having an annoying Issue with the Sharepoint 2007 Enterprise search functionality. I cannot get the Search Centre to work, the out of the box webparts crash the page except the Searchbox when the others are closed. The event viewer shows up numerous Errors (Office Sharepoint Server - EventID 7080) returns with and the same when trying to add a search related web part (e.g. core.results, federated etc). EventID 6398 - Timer is a regular as is 7080. Details below.

A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 26 - Error Locating Server/Instance Specified).

Remote connections are connected, I am not 100% on the Instance name, (how would I go about checking this?)

Also I cannot access the link to SharedServices1 - Open Shared Services Admin site (not clickable), guess it's permissions but I seem to have full site permissions, I think I need SSP-Admin to make more edits to the Search, maybe this is related :s

Both Search Servers are runnig, I have tried everything I can think of to fix this and allow the Search Centre to work.

I am running Sharepoint 2007 on SQL Server 2008.
