Today, I had a problem I never had before with SharePoint 2010, being with the Beta or even the RC.

My Managed Metadata Server was running and a proxy created. To that proxy, I connected a site and everything seemed to work correctly. Until I created a site column of type Managed Metadata. In the place where normally you can select the term store to use for the column, there was a message saying "The required feature is not enabled for this column type", which was quite strange as I checked several times and all the needed features were activated.

As most of the times, my friend google :-) helped me. I found this post, not that new so it means that it is a know problem, not only on the RC.

Basically, according to this post, you have to activate a feature that has the ID 73EF14B1-13A9-416B-A9B5-ECECA2B0604C. But this feature is not present in the feature list from the user interface, so you have to run the stsadm command for your site.

This solved the problem, but I really wonder why it happened only this time....

After my Wifi access problem, earlier in the day, I faced another little problem when I wanted to save a document from Office Word 2010 into a SharePoint 2010 document library :

Apparently, this is not an error displayed only in this situation and it seems occuring independantly from the Office version or even the SharePoint version. In fact, it is also related to the way Windows Server 2008 R2 works locally. Remember, I am using my server as a workstation.

The only thing that has to be done is to add the "Desktop Experience" feature and it will work well.

Notice also that before installing this feature, I was also unable to create a "New Document" from a document library, the template was simply not downloaded to the Office client. This also has been fixed by the "Desktop Experience" feature

When I started, few days ago, to prepare a demo about SharePoint 2010 metadata management, I would not have thought it would be that difficult to setup just the machine.

To be able to take the demo with me, I installed a laptop with Windows Server 2008 R2 and the necessary stuff and problems occured when I came nomad with it, using the wireless. Something that is not really rocket science, after all. The problem was that it was completely unable to connect any wireless network

What has to be known, nevertheless, is that on a Windows Server 2008 server box freshly installed, almost nothing is installed. Therefore, to enable to discovery and then to connect on an available WiFi, you have to add the "Wireless LAN Service" feature as it is showed in the picture below :

So, after few minutes of installation, I was finally able to connect on the net.

For those people that want to evaluate and try Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010, Microsoft released last week the 2010 Information Worker Demonstration Virtual Machine.

It seems to be ready for Hyper-V and it encompasses in fact two virtual machines :

1.- A domain controller server with SQL Server 2008, Visual Studio 2010 and the Office Suite 2010

2.- A joined Windows Server 2008

As everything has a price, the download weight 13.5GB :-)
