SharePoint Managed Metadata Service is not available

At one of our customers we had the error message, that the managed metadata service or the connection is not available. I am not sure, but it may be due to an update we installed a few days earlier.

I read a post which says that the application pool account does not have enough rights to read the registry. The suggestion was to run the following powershell script:

psconfig -cmd secureresources

After i did this, it starts a script similiar to the configuration wizard with three steps and after that we did an issreset. It was working fine after doing this. Hope this helps you some day.

SharePoint: Send Mail by using Powershell

Powershell has great functionalities. One of those is the sendmail function. We used it like a timer job for reminding people to do something special. We built a small script which checks certain list items in SharePoint and fetches the title, the create date and the author. If the item is older than 30 days, the author gets a reminder to do a task on the item.

The powershell is stored as scheduled task in windows. But i’d like to share the sendmail function with you.



$to = "you@mailadress.com"
$subject = 'Subject Text'
$body = 'Body Text'

#SMTP server name (which is configured in SharePoint)
$smtpServer = "SMTPServer"
#Creating a Mail object
$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
#Creating SMTP server object
$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer)
#Email structure
$msg.From = "yoursender@mailadress.com"
$msg.To.Add($to.Email)
$msg.subject = $subject
$msg.body = $body
$msg.isBodyHTML = $true
#Sending email
$smtp.Send($msg)


That’s it. Now you can put some values from the list into the body or subject or even the receiver address (to). Enjoy it.

SharePoint Missing Module when activating a feature

In the last weeks we resolved an error, which might be interesting for others as well. We got this Error message, that there was an error for a file from a specific module and that the list was not available.

Fehlermeldung

It came up at several features, if we tried to activate them. It was always a list which were used by the publishing features. The publishing feature were not activated, but could not be activated using the UI.

Therefore we used stsadm, to resolve it.



stsadm -o deactivatefeature -id f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa -url "http://server/sites/sitecollection" -force

stsadm -o activatefeature -id f6924d36-2fa8-4f0b-b16d-06b7250180fa -url "http://server/sites/sitecollection" -force


After that it worked well again. We assume that it had to problems with the publishing features.
