Custom Content Types Missing after 2007 Upgrade to 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 

Hello everyone - 

We have a portal solution leveraging custom publishing content types and page layouts in 2007. The database was backed up, and the upgrade was done via dbattach on a 2010 environment. The site works seemingly fine - though there is some strange behavior we noticed where a few content types are missing.

The Content Type Gallery lists only say 10 of the 15 content types we should have. Loading the Master Page and Page Layout Gallery we see the inheriting content type, though clicking on it yields in an error as though it cannot find the content type. These are all custom content types, though they are not very different from each other.

Has anyone experienced this problem and devised a solution? - I tried to iterate through the site collection via a console application to see if I could somehow update or intercept the issue with the missing content types to no avail. I'll be open to suggestions / tools recommended...

All the best,

Alex

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

SP2010 Upgrade Error: Missing Reusable Content Types

  

During the in-place upgrade from MOSS2007 to SharePoint 2010, I experienced the following issue for numerous site collections.  Even though these were errors, the configuration wizard completed with Errors stating that there were some sites not fully upgraded.

I cannot determine how to resolve this error and complete the content database upgrade.   Thanks in advance.

 

In the Upgrade-YYYYMMDD-######-##-error.log file, the following details were logged for about 15 different site collections:

After SharePoint 2007 upgrade to SharePoint 2010 issue with custom site(s)

  

With our 2007 site(s) we had a custom module (we developed) to swap out the application.master with our own master page which resembled the site default.master.  This worked great.

After the upgrade, out site's main pages looked fine however when navigating to the admin type pages (settings/viewlists etc.) pages the module stopped working.

1.) I have figured out something things with respect to what is going on but am still at a loss to how best resolve.  We want the layouts/admin pages to have the same master page as the main user pages.   I have read in 2010 this is now possible.  How can I achieve this?

 

2.) Currently, when navigating to the sites/settings page the site is using template/layouts/layoutsv3.master as the master page.  The settings.aspx page has DynamicMasterPageFile="~masterurl/default.master" .  It was my understanding that when DynamicMasterPageFile was set to default.master it would use the master page from the site.  So, with that said I am confused why it is using layoutsv3.master

any help would be appreciated

SharePoint 2007-2010 content upgrade, Summary Links web part closed after upgrade.

  

Has anyone seen this before?

Did a DB content upgrade from SharePoint 2007 to 2010.  After the content upgrade (with only a warning saying that an unknown 3rd party web part was missing), we reviewed the new site, and found MANY pages which contained Summary Links web parts suddenly had many (but not ALL) of the Summary Links web parts now marked as closed.  At first we thought the parts were missing from the page, but when we edit the page we see the parts are in the Closed gallery.  We can add the part back in from the Closed gallery and all it's originally set properties are there.  Why are they coming up as Closed after the upgrade when they weren't Closed BEFORE the upgrade?

More details:

We have quite a few pages that contain one or more Summary Links web parts.  On SOME of the pages, one or more of these web parts are now Closed.  However, not ALL of the pages that contain these parts have the parts closed, and on the pages that now have these closed parts, not ALL of the Summary Links parts on that page are Closed, so it is not a problem with an unregistered Summary Links web part as the part is working on the same and other pages (I found other people on the web mentioning issues where NONE of their Summary Links parts are working after an upgrade.)  So, it seems to be somewhat random as to which instance

Upgrade Sharepoint 2007 Custom State Machine/Sequential workflow to SharePoint 2010

  

Hello,

What's the path for upgrading the SharePoint 2007 Custom State Machine/Sequential workflow to SharePoint 2010 when the current SharePoint 2007 environment is upgraded to SharePoint 2010 by an inplace upgrade?

What's the typical estimate time for upgrading SP2007 custom workflow to SP2010 custom workflow?  My gut says 40 to 80 hrs or even less than that, what’s your thoughts?

FYI...I tried to upgrade the SharePoint custom workflow built using visual studio 2008 in SP2007 environment to visual studio 2010 solution/project in SP2010 environment, I got the error messages to refer the following dll's

Microsoft.SharePoint.dll and Microsoft.SharePoint.WorkflowActions.dll

Even after referring the new dlls still the workflow design doesn't show up in the canvas...still work on this to fix mean while want to know the experts insights on this.

Content Types in MOSS 2007

  
In this article I will try to describe the one of the best feature in Microsoft office Share Point 2007 called Content Types.

Content types are simply collection of contents.Each content in a Content type can have different settings.Basically it is a reusable collection of settings which you want to apply to a particular category of contents.

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.
