Managed Metadata Service: Cannot check for changes because no EMM application proxy can be found


We have a managed metadata service with two owners. Both of them can't change anything to the term store anymore. The moment they try they get access denied:

The user doesnt have enough permissions. When looking into the log of SharePoint i found the following message:

Cannot check for changes because no EMM application proxy can be found

When I try to add another administrator using the Install_Admin account (who is farm admin) I get the same message that the user doesnt have enough permissions.

Our term store is setup in multiple languages with Dutch being the primary one.

Any help much appreciated.


Proxy Managed Metadata Service Error

Hi I've deleted my web apps installed a language pack and then I've created new web apps and site collections on them with the new language (not reinstalling all again). On my portal I've made a Content type based on Document Set with a few Custom columns based on some taxonomy created before. My problem is that the new Content type was created like one which was created before deleting my web apps (the custom columns are the same), and now when I publish it the other web app is importing the old content type first (FROM WHERE I DON"T KNOW) and when tries to import the new one (which has a column with the same name) the Proxy Managed Metadata Service gives an error 'Filed internal name conflict.....' If I click on managed Metadata Service url http://portal/_layouts/mngctype.aspx  the old Content type of course that it's not present. Where should I search for it to delete it ?

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?


Managed Metadata Service Application Problem



I've been trying for a whole day to configure managed metadata services on a windows server 2008 R2 environment but I keep getting this error:

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 tried searching for a resolution and here's what I got:

  1. Change the application pool account / Check that the pool is running.
  2. Download hot fixes KB981002 and KB976462.
  3. IISRESET / Restart the server.
  4. Ensure that Managed Metadata service is running.

The third solution worked for me in my development environment which is Windows 7, but I couldn't get it to work in Windows server 2008 R2 which is the production environment.

Any help would be appreciated :)

Is it possible to implement your own version of the Managed Metadata Service?

Hi, It would be nice to provision a new instance of the Managed Metadata Service where the service is not implemented by Microsoft.SharePoint.Taxonomy.MetadataWebServiceApplication, but a custom provider. Is it possible to expose your own service as a Managed Metadata Service?

Issue using Managed Metadata with custom fields in the User Profiles application


Hi there,

I've created several custom properties in my User Profile Application.

I've also created several Term Sets in the Managed Metadata service application Term Store for use with these custom properties. Some of the Term Sets contain terms and have a closed submission policy whilst others have an open submission policy.

If the user hasn't already populated any of these custom fields in their profile, when they click on the Edit My Profile link from their My Site Profile page everything seems okay (for the first time).

The user is then able to successfully select values for these custom fields - the metadata is available. They can click on the "tag" icon to select values, or start typing and the suggestions appear. They are also able to enter new values into custom property fields where the term set is open to submission.

If they then Save and Close then go back into Edit My Profile, often not all of the existing data is populated in the metadata custom fields. On different occasions different fields may be blank. Sometimes this is accompanied by the error "Message from webpage / The server method 'ValidateTerms' failed", but not always.

Has anyone else tried this or have any suggestions are to what the issue might be?

Thanks in advance.

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?


Managed Metadata Service



I have some problems configuring the Managed Metadata Service and help would be appreciated.

I managed to add a new group into the Term Store Management Tool, with my own personal structure, not a problem here.
But when I go to a document library or list and I want to make a new colomn of type Managed Metadata, then the problems begin. The notification 
"The required feature is not enabled for this column type." appears in the manage term set search box, but I cán search and find my defined taxonomy. When I try to OK this, following message (under this manage term set box) appears : "The Taxonomy feature (Feature ID "73EF14B1-13A9-416b-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C") has not been activated.".

I'm not able to find this specific feature and have every other feature necessary for the managed metadata options turned on.

Anyone has an idea of what went wrong here?


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?



Creating User Profile Service application and proxy using PowerShell

Hi All,

Not sure if anybody have tried creating a new user profile service application and user profile service aplication proxy using PowerShell?

I am able to create the user profile service application using the following cmdlet:

-ApplicationPool "SharePoint Web Services Default"
-Name "Demo Profile User Service"
-MySiteHostLocation http://demo2010a:80/my
-ProfileDBName UserProfile_ProfileDB_Demo
-ProfileSyncDBName UserProfile_SyncDB_Demo
-SocialDBName UserProfile_SocialDB_SyncDB

I was also not able to supply the MySite Host Relative Path (-MySiteRelativePath) and MySites have not been set up for the user profile application. And again, get-help lists MySiteRelativePath as a valid parameter, but when executed, PowerShell throws that the parameter is invalid. 

I am unable to create  a new proxy for the above created user profile service application using the cmdlet:


The cmdlet keeps asking for parameter Uri which seems to be undocumented.

Would be glad if anyone can help out here.

SharePoint 2010 Service Application Proxy & My Site Settings


I have a SharePoint 2010 Site Configured with Claims based FBA. I have also made My Site work with FBA.

My question is:

In 2007 I would create a seperate SSP for FBA based my site and Set all configuration there. As SharePoint 2010 supports Service Application Proxy how can I isolate FBA based My site and Other AD sites.

While I was able to select the required services for my Site using Configure service application associations link in Central admin, all changes I make in My Site Settings reflect for both FBA & AD based application.

How do I isolate My Site changes ?? I wanted to have different configuration for each of the My Sites

Publishing the Managed Metadata Service, through a firewall to another AD Forrest - fun and games...


Hi People,

we've got two SP2010 Farms in two separate AD Domains/Forrests, which are connected via a firewall and there is no trust at the AD level.

Both farms consist of an App Server (Central Admin and all Service Applications) and a WFE (Content plus Query/Index role).

The Managed Metadata Service on Farm A is published through to Farm B and so we've had to open up ports through the firewall so the App Server in Farm B can talk to the SharePoint Web Services on Farm A (32843, 32844 and 32845) and that all appears to be working properly, even to the extent that the Content Deployment from Farm A to Farm B is also working and the managed properties in the content are all being mapped/managed correctly.

However I'm now seeing requests by the the WFE in Farm B to access the topology service running on WFE in Farm A! Hold on!
As it was, I already had to allow both the App Server and the WFE in Farm B to be able to access the SharePoint Web Service ports on the App Server in Farm A, and now I have to do the same for the WFE in Farm A?!?!? That can't be right.

Isn't the whole point of having proxy services, Central Admin and an App Server (hosting all the services) that you only have to open up a single server? Why does every machine in one farm have to know about every machine in another farm?

Talk about a firewall mana

"Requested Service not found" on client when restart service with a .NET MarshalByRef remoting proxy


I have a client application that uses a single remoting entry point (a MarshalByRef class) to access a range of other MarshalByRef services on the server.

The server:

public class ServiceManager : MarshalByRefObject, IServiceManager
  IService1 service1;
  public ServiceManager(IService1 service1)
    this.service1 = service1;
  public override object InitializeLifetimeService()
    return null; // never expire

  public IService1 GetService1()
    return service1;

public class Service1 : MarshalByRefObject, IService1
  public override object InitializeLifetimeService()
    return null; // never expire
