Trying to recreate Help Desk site in SharePoint 2010 fails with an error

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

The site template requires that the Feature {af6d9aec-7c38-4dda-997f-cc1ddbb87c92} be activated in the site collection.

Troubleshoot issues with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation.

Correlation ID: 1c60c31d-cf82-47f0-a065-3673b4e16ca6

Date and Time: 8/27/2010 7:54:24 AM

I looked up the GUID using http://blogs.msdn.com/b/mcsnoiwb/archive/2010/01/07/features-and-their-guid-s-in-sp2010.aspx as my reference.  However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to add this feature to the site collection.  When I go to the top-level site and go to add site collection features Web Analytics Customize Reports functionality is not there.

Clearly there is something I'm missing but since Microsoft is not redoing the Fabulous 40 site templates, any help in getting the old sites to work in a sharepoint database attach migration will be greatly appreciated.

SharePoint 2010 Site Actions Site Settings Error

I can not seem to go to Site Settings for a sub site in SharePoint 2010.  I installed SharePoint 2010 developer version on my laptop (Win 7 64bit) with Visual Studio 2010.  Try to create a sub site and go to Site Settings and bam!!! Error File Not Found.  This is frustrating.  Very frustrating.  I found so many problem with SharePoint 2010 and get no where with this version upgrade.  My life is completely ____ now.  Thanks Microsoft!  Why! Why! and Why do you not test your software and make people life much more convenience.  Why roll out this crapy software now on MSDN instead of making it clear that it is not ready??????????  WHY!!!!!! Yes, and I try to go to Site Settings from within SharePoint 2010 Designer.  It took me to the same error!!!!!  So what is going on?

Sharepoint 2010: Get error: You do not have permissions to have lists and pages within My Site.

After Installing SharePoint Foundation 2010, trying to open site gives 404 error in browser


I had this as reply on a thread about migrating from WSS 3.0 to SFS 2010. But I have completed all the steps with the modified documentation, but the browser delivers an error 404 when I try to open the site I created.  Same thing happens if I go at it via https, but first I get a certificate warning error (using the IP instead of the FQDN) and then being prompted for credentials.

I am completely stumped at what else to look at.  Any help in gathering information to get help is also appreciated.

Environment:  SBS 2008, SFS 2010, SQL Express 2008.  Rest of the IIS sites continue to function normally and I can get to the management site ok.  Although after the install, I had to go into application pool and change the service account from the domain admin (it defaulted to that) to networkservice account, otherwise I got a 503.  Same thing happened on the site I created until I changed the service account.  Now just a 404.

Session State throws error in ASP.NET Site Pages for SharePoint 2010 portal using Visual Studio 2010


I'm developing Visual Studio 2010 solution for site pages. I’ve created Site Pages in SharePoint 2010 and I’m trying to access Session variables in code behind in ASP.NET but it throws the following error.

Session state can only be used when enableSessionState is set to true, either in a configuration file or in the Page directive. Please also make sure that System.Web.SessionStateModule or a custom session state module is included in the <configuration>\<system.web>\<httpModules> section in the application configuration.

I set the page directive as enableSessionState=&quo

SharePoint Server 2010 Site Suddenly Dissapeared - 404 Error


I created a site in a brand new SharePoint Server 2010 environment.  Now when I browse to the site, I get a 404 error.  The site has suddenly vanished. The link to the site still remains in SharePoint, but it's not there!  I tried running the SP Prod and Tech Config Wizard, rebooting, etc...

No one is even using this environment.

Any ideas?

Did anyone at Microsoft test SharePoint Server or Project Server before launch?  This 2010 release is so full of bugs.  Sorry to rant.

SharePoint 2010 Internet Enterprise uninstall/reinstall with fixed enterprise key fails with error,


In attempting to apply the advice in http://blogs.msdn.com/b/sharepoint/archive/2010/06/03/sharepoint-server-2010-for-internet-sites-update.aspx, I'm unable to re-install SharePoint 2010 Enterprise for Internet Sites. 

I had a "Server Farm" installation using RTM (from my Select site) that installed all components (i.e., "Complete").  In addition, I had FAST server and Web Apps installed.

Per the instructions, I simply used the Control Panel to do the uninstall:

  • Used the Control Panel to uninstall SharePoint 2010 (i.e., yes to "Are you sure you want to remove Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 from your computer")
  • Restart
  • Get new product key
  • Run setup
  • Get error:  "The install in progress conflicts with a previously installed Microsoft Office 2010 Server product"

Perhaps I should have run the configuration wizard first to disconnect, etc. but was trying to follow the provided instructions exactly.

That said ... what can I do to clean up the remnants so I can re-install the product without wiping the server, etc.


P.S.  If the instructions were not intended to be taken literally, please update t

Saving Site as a Template Results in an Error in Migrated SharePoint 2010



We've migrated our corporate SharePoint 2007 farm to 2010. We're having an issue with Saving Sites as Templates. I've created a blank site and attempted to Save the Site as a template and receive an error. The logs have the following below about the error:

System.InvalidOperationException: Error generating solution files in temporary directory.

The strange thing is, we have 3 web applications and only one exhibits this behavior.

Any ideas where I can look further?

Thanks in advance.

Cannot crawl sharepoint site and mysite after database attach upgrade form sharepoint 2007 to 2010.

After database attach upgrade site and mysite from sharepoint 2007 to 2010 , I have full crawl and get "The crawler could not communicate with the server.

( Error from SharePoint site: HttpStatusCode ServiceUnavailable The request failed with HTTP status 503: Service Unavailable. )" for mysite and get "Access is denied. Verify that either the Default Content Access Account has access to this repository, or add a crawl rule to crawl this repository. If the repository being crawled is a SharePoint repository, verify that the account you are using has "Full Read" permissions on the SharePoint Web Application being crawled." for sharepoint site. The content access account for search is "db_owner" of both of site and mysite. How do I solved this problem ?
