Site Collection Reporting Feature?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 17, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi I'm wondering if anyone knows or has seen Microsoft documentation on what activating the "Reporting" feature within the Site Collection Features page will do?  The reason I ask is I thought that activating it at the site collection level was required in order to use site collection usage and site usage reports.  That's what MS's site says here:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262541(office.12).aspx  However I have one farm where those usage reports are available, but this site collection feature has not been activated.  Usage logging was enabled through CA for the farm and usage reporting was enabled through CA for the SSP). This is a MOSS 2007 environment.

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.

Extend site collection Users reporting

Is there a way that the Unique Users found in "

Portal > Site Settings > Site Collection Usage Summary > Site collection users

  report can be extended 30/60/90 days as a way to look at actual unique users over a given period?  My fear is that users that login in a given period are being recounted the following month as unique for that period.  Anyone know of a way that this can be accomplished easily?  LOL

Why do the aks master pages not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collecti


I installed AKS 2.0 and activated AKS feature. The problem I found was the aks master pages do not get applied if the feature is not activated on the top site collection. why is so?

example: If i activate the feature on http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> and apply the master page, I dont see any changes.

              But if i activate the same aks feature on http://<servername/ then everything started working on all sites.

              The reason i found is the CSS reference in the aks master pages.

              It reference should be given as follows:

                 for http://<servername>/sites/<sitename> ->  <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../../Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

                 for http://<servername>/ -><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/Style%20Library/AKS/Aks_Band_Blueband.css"/>

So my question is, am i missing anything? am i supposed to activate the AKS feature on top level site collection at any cost? if yes, why is so? 

And after applying aks master pages, i see differnece in font sizes. Why the font size is getting changed?


Site Collection Usage Summary: No Data Available


Usage analysis processing is enable for my farm in both Central Administration and in the SSP.

I've checked TImer Job Status and the three timer jobs responsible for doing the log analsis are all running.

I've also checked the log file locations and the log files are being generated.

Yet when I browse the "Site collection usage summary" report (SpUsageSite.aspx) I get the following:

No data is available for this report. Usage analysis might have been enabled only recently, or there might have been insufficient usage to result in any values for the report.

My farm is running 2007 Enterprise SP2 (

Can someone confirm if this issue was fixed with one of the CU's that were issues post-SP2?

Site Collection Usage Report Include Outlook?


Hi all,

Does anyone know if the Site Collection Usage Report includes activity that occurs from Outlook? For example, if a user contributes to a discussion board without ever physically touching the site or if the user just reads list content from Outlook, is this included?

ANY help at all is greatly appreciated.


Why feature with event receiver doesn't activate properly after site provisioning?



I have defined feature with event receivers for my document library and for users List .

I try to activate my feature in onet.xml in section <WebFeatures>. After provisioning a new site from onet.xml  all work fine and my feature is shown as activated, but event receivers doesn't fire. It fires only after reactivating my feature (deactivate, then activate it again). But I need my feature works immediately after site provisioning without deactivating and activating it again. Who knows how to solve this problem?

part of ONET.xml

Portal Search Work - Site Collection Search Does Not


In our SharePoint installation we have an SSP which indexes local office sharepoint server sites.  However there is a problem, although we can do portal searches which reveal search results it is not able to do local searches at the site collection level and as a result we are presented with the typical error below.


No results matching your search were found.

  1. Check your spelling. Are the words in your query spelled correctly?
  2. Try using synonyms. Maybe what you're looking for uses slightly different words.
  3. Make your search more general. Try more general terms in place of specific ones.
  4. Try your search in a different scope. Different scopes can have different results.

I am unsure as to why this strange event is occuring.  We do not have the WSS Search component running in the MOSS environment as the SSP service should be able to index and server search queries at the portal and local site collection level.


Any thoughts to this?

Only crawl one site collection

Hi We have an intranet with about 100 site collections. How can I set up one of those to be in a separate content source that can be crawled more often? Do I need to make two content sources with one containing the other 99 site collections with the setting "Crawl only the SharePoint Site of each start address" and the other one containg my prioritized site collection with the same setting? I also would like to ask if the crawl rules have any effect on in which order the content is crawled. If I put a certain site to be included with order 1 will that site always be crawled first? //Niclas

site collection size

what is the solution of a site collection if its size grows beyond 100GB?  There is no way we can split it into two site collections and the content database will be large than 100GB even if it contains a signal site collection. Thanks in advance, Peter  

SharePoint Search not working on one site collection

I am running into some weird behavior with how SharePoint is crawling site/list data.  Let's say our main intranet site is http://www.intranet.com: Most of our older sites are setup with URLs like http://www.intranet.com/sites/sitename .  Crawling is working fine on these sites and I can execute a search and find all of the results I would expect.  At some point recently (before I joined this firm), they made a decision that all new sites would have the URL http://www.intranet.com/SiteDirectory/sitename .  Any sites which fall into this bucket are not being crawled, it would seem. If I check Central Adman>Shared Services>Search Administration, I can see that the first content source being crawled is http://www.intranet.com so I would imagine this crawl should pick up anything under /SiteDirectory/ but it is not.  I also checked the Crawl Settings on this page and it is set to "Crawl everything under the hostname for each start address".  Lastly, I see that there were only 21 errors in the last full crawl but none of these errors apply to a /SiteDirectory/ site. In short, what could be causing the crawl to apparently skip all of the sites within /SiteDirectory/ and how can this best be fixed?

Custom Theme for entire Site Collection

I created a theme with custom css for sharepoint 2010 Is it possible for me to use my custom CSS and have it be a selectable theme from each site without me having to modify the master pages of each site that wants to use the theme?

All Users (Including Site Collection Admins) receiving Access Denied from one Site Collection

I usually spend my time in the forums answering questions.  But this time I need the help. I’ve got a client who somehow has succeeded in locking EVERYONE out of one of their Site Collections.  Users can authenticate to the site, but get an accessdenied page when you try to access anything in the site collection, including pages served from the _Layouts virtual directory.  The AccessDenied page shows that they are authenticated, but not authorized.  This is true for Site Collection admins and user’s who have been given Grant Full Control via a Web Application Permission Policy.  Central Admin and one other site collection are behaving normally.  I've already checked for database permissions - the service account can access the database fine. I've also checked for a locked database or overextended quota.  It's not that either. The accessdenied page url references the users list in the root of the site collection as the offending list denying access.   Does anyone have any ideas?Paul Stork SharePoint Server MVP
