Get the error 'The Workstation service has not been started' when trying to create a new content d


I am running SharePoint 2010 on a standalone machine, and the workstation service is up and running.  We are not using AD. Restarting the service makes no difference. Rebooting the machine hasn't helped either. No errors are being written to the event log.

Service Account Selection Error 'The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary do


Hi Guys,

I am trying to setup the first node in a SQL failover cluster. When selecting a service account, from the domain, for any of the SQL services during setup I recieve the following error:

  • Error in User Account - <user sid> 'The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed'

Thus far I have tried:

  1. Creating seperate accounts in the domain for each service, any account fails other than the built-in domain 'Administrator .'
  2. Reset the computer account in order to rule out secure channel failure between computer account and workstation.
  3. Netdiag/DC Diag tests on the domain - all of which were fine.
  4. Tested other Windows 2000/2003 servers joined to the domain for issues - there are no auth/domain issues elsewhere.
  5. Confirmed the correct binding order in the network settings on the cluster nodes.
  6. As a side note, I am able to logon to the server as a domain account - I am logged on as a Domain Admin account.

More information about setup:

  • Windows 2008 R2 x64 Cluster with all Windows Updates (hosted on vSphere)
  • SQL Server 2008 Standard
  • Windows 2000 Active Directory (Forest Function Level: Windows 2000 / Domain Function Level: Windows 2000)

If anyone has any suggestions I'd be g

error with "Create new content" type Translation Management Library


I added the Translation Management feature today, using the following command line:

stsadm -o activatefeature -name TransMgmtlib -url http://mysite

everything seemed to work fine, as no error occurred at this stage, and when I go to my top level site settings, click on "Site libraries and lists", then "create new content" I now see "Translation Management" as an option.

I select this type, click Create, complete the first part of the 'wizard' (Name and Description, etc.), then I'm on step 2 and this is where the error occurs. 

  1. The Workflow select box is disabled, and from the articles I've read this should be usable.
  2. More critically, when I complete this form and click Next, I get a server error:

    Validation of viewstate MAC failed. If this application is hosted by a Web Farm or cluster, ensure that <machineKey> configuration specifies the same validationKey and validation algorithm. AutoGenerate cannot be used in a cluster. 

I've googled around, and tried updating various items in my web.config and machine.config, but I cannot find the solution. A lot o

"Duplicate content type name" error when trying to create a site from a custom site template


I am getting "A duplication content type name 'Approval' was found" error, when I try to create a new site based on a custom template.  These are the steps that result in the error:

  1. Create a new blank site.
  2. Without making any changes, save the blank site as a site template called "test".
  3. Try to create a new site based on the "test" template.
  4. Get the above error.

I did notice that when I tried creating site from the template in a different area of my site collection, the error name changed from "Approval" to "Requestor". 

As it stands I cannot use custom templates in my site collection.  Any advice on how to overcome this error?

A little background because I feel I have an out of the ordinary architecture in place and don't know if this is contributing to the problem. 

We have an existing ASP.net application that is undergoing expansion.  The new functionality is all written in Silverlight 4.  As part of that expansion I gutted all the old Linq to SQL and put Entity Framework 4 into place.  To do this I created a standard .net Class Library and added my edmx files there.  Naturally, the business entities created by this cannot be used in Silverlight.  So I created a Silverlight Class Library and added all the business entities to that Silverlight Class Library as linked files.  I changed the name space to be the same.

So I have the following assembly / namespaces

Company.Project.Dal.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (.net 4 class library)

Company.Project.Entities.csproj / Company.Project.Entities (SL4 class library)

With this architecture I was able to share my business entities with my SL enabled web services, my asp.net projects, my silverlight projects.  Really it's a beautiful thing.

Once this was done I added "message" classes to Company.Project.Dal and again shared them with the other entites using linked files.  These messages are things like MyObjectRequest; they are class

"Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try ..."


i have a problem with search function where everytime i search any file/doc the error message "Your search cannot be completed because of a service error. Try your search again or contact your administrator for more information." occurred. I realized that there are items in central admin but it is "not available" in my site. I already follow several guides that had been provided in this forum but still the same. Even, i already create new SSP and configure the search scope, content source and also crawling. 

FYI, i used Microsoft Sharepoint 2007. 

Hope anyone could help me to solve this problem. Thanks.

InfoPath form checked out so 'on create' workflow not being started


Hi all,


I have found a couple of threads asking for advice on how to check in an InfoPath form when it’s saved or submitted to a forms library. The reason for doing this is so a workflow can start based on a new item being created in that library, and so it doesn’t just sit there with a “Starting” status.


The answers I have found contradict each other:

·         You have to do it with a workflow.  This can be done easily with SharePoint Designer if that's an option for you. Source:

RDL Rendering (500 Internal Server) Error at Sharepoint Integrated Reporting Service


I have a serious problem that cannot be solved by googling around the keywords below:
sharepoint, moss 2007, reporting service, ssrs 2008, rendering, internal server error, ....

The error is;

"An error occurred during client rendering. The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error. "

Everything is O.K.;

* When I render the report from the REPORTSERVER (http://localhost/ReportServer)
* When the reports are scheduled to be sent by the reporting service (planned via MOSS 2007) 

But if I open (render) the RDL file from the sharepoint REPORTS LIBRARY interface, all of the reports fail with that internal error message above. 

It is weird also that parametrized reports are displayed without errors although the parameters are queried from a sql dataset. But I got the error when rendering the report after I've chosen a parameter  and order "apply/report"...

Possible causes how I met that error may be;

After I have installed (then uninstalled) AJAX extensions
After I have re-configured IIS Web Service Extensions list items

Possible solution alternatives I've found;

I've found a solution on MSDN replying a similar issue with an ideal cause of the error but an evreka answer but no sol

Can anyone make sense of it?
