Content Query Web Part missing in SharePoint 2010

  
If you don't see content query web part listed in the web parts list, this is because you have not enabled "Search Server Web Parts" feature in site collection features. Enable this feature and content query web part will show in the list of web parts.

Search Service Application missing in SharePoint 2010

  
I installed SharePoint 2010 (Enterprise edition), enabled Enterprise features but it is missing Search Service Application when I look under Central Administration > Application Management > Manage Service Application.   When I click on New it doesn't even list "Search Service Application".    When I goto Upgrade and Patch Management > Check Product and Patch Installation Status, it tells me that "Microsoft Search Server 2010 Core" was Installed.  Under Manage services of server, "Sharepoint Foundation Search" is started.  Does anyone have an idea why the "Search Service Application" is missing and how can I install it?

Sharepoint 2010 Missing Content Types

  
Has anyone run into an issue where your system's base content types dissappear after deploying a new site definition.  We are doing a proof of concept using several CMS solutions and decided to see how sharepoint would fare in the process.  I worked on the POC for 6 weeks without any issues.  After selecting sharepoint as the solution I started refactoring my code into a more logical structure as many of the components were developed from sample code.  I created a couple of custom site definitions that were pretty simple.  Basically I copied the onenet.xml from the publishing site template that sharepoint uses and made a few simple modifications like associating my custom master page and a custom content type with the default page.  When I initially developed these I had no issues at all but yesterday I suddenly was not able to create sites using these site defs.  I figured there was some kind of conflict with my old templates so I deleted all site collections on the server and then tried to create a new site collection and then I couldn't even create a base publishing site.  I got an error indicating the base content type did not exist.  After spending hours going through logs it was clear that sharepoint was not able to build the content type hiearchy when creating new sites so I took a look at the UI and there were only abo

SharePoint 2010 External Content Type and InfoPath 2010 - Numeric data type fields missing in InfoPa

  

Connected SQL data table to SP 2010 ECT from SQL table.  The SQL table has several fields that have a type of "numeric(3,0)".  The SP 2010 list shows all fields form SQL.  When we open up InfoPath Designer and reference the SP List data (from SQL) all of our numer fields are missing from the available fields list.

I amd going to try another data type but that hardly feels like a solution.  If anyone has any ideas please let me know!


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?

Sharepoint 2010 AD Sync - missing picture from AD to pictureURL

  

Hi all:

I have followed Jie Lie (Technical sharepoint Product Manger) steps in entirety (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/opal/archive/2009/11/19/user-profile-sync-setup-in-sharepoint-server-2010-beta.aspx), my sync with AD is working fine except it is not pulling the pictures in the AD.

Here is my issue, we have photos of all employees stored as domain.xyz.jpg in the custom attribute (emp_pics_2001) with type string, but the picture url type is url (is this the culprit type change), I am using the custom attribute to map the field in the Sharepoint 2010 miis client.

I am using the below url to do the set up: http://goodbadtechnology.blogspot.com/2010/05/setting-up-pictureurl-user-profile.html

i did check the profile db picture url field is NULL, i have all the other values for person except the picture.., I have already wasted more than 2 days in figuring this out

If i just get domain.xyz.jpg pulled to sharepoint, then i can prefix a url in front of it using powershell
I am using a full trusted service account with full permissions to the domain

please help me out..

thank you

SharePoint 2010 - missing server side dependencies and missing web parts

  

I did a clean SP 2010 install recently on a new server farm.  I got a health analyzer warning about missing server side dependencies - a lot of them - and missing web parts ... then I installed the August cumulative upgrade and got a clean configuration but an erro log with, again, a list of theoretically missing web parts.  I don't see any issue with features or functions but-- even after reading the posts- am unable to figure out (1) whether this is important or (2) how to fix it -- please note that my test server shows none of these issues - the only difference between test and prod is that test is completely vanilla and production uses a named instance of SQL Server ... Thanks so much for any advise ... Pete

How do I enable/add the ability to Customize my Theme in SharePoint 2010 if the section is missing?

  

Question: How do I enable/add the ability to Customize my Theme in SharePoint 2010 if the section is missing in one site collection on a server?

Preface:
I'm doing all this on a staging server, not our production server.
I have a site collection that has been successfully moved from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint 2010 Server (Enterprise).
I ran the Visual Upgrade on all sites in the Site Collection, so that the v4 interface is being used.

When I edit the Theme (Site Actions / Site Settings: Look and Feel / Site Theme), I can only choose an existing one, and have no way to Customize it. The Customize Theme section simply isn't present.

Notes:
Another new Site Collection (not an upgrade from WSS) on the same server correctly shows the Customize Theme section.
I checked all the features available and didn't see anything that stood out. (It's possible I missed it).

Service Applications missing from SharePoint Server 2010 Installation

  

Hi Guys, 

I recently completed an in-place upgrade from WSS 3.0 to SharePoint Foundation 2010 to SharePoint Server 2010. While the first half of this migration process seems to have worked from WSS 3.0 to Foundation 2010 the upgrade from Foundation 2010 to Server 2010 has left the installation with only the Foundation level service applications.

If I go to add a new service application the only ones listed are the foundation service applications but if I go to check the current license it confirms the enterprise server edition is installed. I have re-ran the product configuration wizard and if I check the patch status in central administration it confirms that all the enterprise components are installed they just aren't showing up in the service applications listing! 

Any ideas on how I can add these missing services to central administration?

Cheers.

 

 

 

 


SharePoint 2010 - Column Validation (List Level) User Message Missing

  

I first saw this issue being discussed in January 2010 here, but there has not been any response in some time. 

What basically happens is when you set column validation for the list level (not per column) the message that alerts the user that the column does not meet the validation requirements is completely missing.   Both the default message or a custom message do not show up. 

Does anyone know if there is a hotfix for this issue yet?  I would expect more than a year later there would be one, but if so I can't seem to find it.  I would really like to correct this issue as column validation is a nice enhancement over SharePoint 2007.  Thanks in advance for any help.

In case there is an exception anywhere in the SharePoint 2010 project (most common place an exception would happen is during deployment of your SharePoint project, custom deployment configuration or custom deployment steps), there's a registry key EnableDiagnostics available for you to use.
